Yes I have run bin/check_perms and fixed a few inconsequential
permission problems.

We managed to fix the problem this morning by recompiling Mailman with
the correct directory. What we did for the upgrade was to copy existing
Mailman directories from the old machine to the same location on the new
machine. I then built Mailman in a directory
called /usr/local/mailman2.1.6 and copied the binaries over to
the /usr/local/mailman directory. What I did not realise is that the
directory is hard coded into the cgi-bin scripts. 

Thank you for your suggestion though.
