I remember having this problem when I was first testing out mailman a while
ago (v 2.1 if I remember correctly), running on BSD.
I had the privacy options set so that only listmembers could see the other
listmembers. When I sent in a request as just a listmember with the list
members password, then I got the error message. When I sent in the request
as a listmember with the list-owners password, mailman returned the desired
results. It also worked using the server-admin level password. I didn't
fool around with the various permutations, or work on debugging it.
Since getting the list of members was a regular need, I ended up solving it,
by writing a script using
~/usr/local/mailman/bin/list_members -f listname | mail -s"listname list
and running it as a cron job.
Hope this helps,
