How did you install Mailman? If you installed from source and you still
have the directory you ran configure and make in, what is in the src/

You could just try running

make install > make.log

If you didn't install from source, of course this doesn't help.

Also, is the modification date on private.bad the same as the others in
cgi-bin? If there is a 'private' in the src/ directory, how does it
compare to 'private.bad'.

You could just try

mv private.bad private

and see what happens.
