[Mailman-Users] one dead list (all others fine)

Thanks to help via Jabber from some uber-admin in Spain, I determined
that I needed to upgrade to 2.1.5. Unfortunately, now my web interface
is broken so I can't disable the emergency moderation feature (thus
preventing me from testing the broken list). So step one for me now is
to get the web interfaces working. I've tried to tweak mm_cfg.py but it
still seems to be reading a different configuration (e.g., it is trying
to launch */cgi-bin/* even though both mm_cfg and Deafults.py exclude
that in the URLs).

/me goes to RTFM some more
