I'm not running this over NFS -- it's local.

Here's what I get:
-rwxr-sr-x  1 root mailman 34701 Feb  8 14:53 admin

I don't see the * after "admin", but other than that the perms seem
correct. However, my cgi-bin directory is /var/mailman/cgi-bin, not
what you stated. I'm assuming this is okay.

It doesn't look like the above; here's the entire file (sans comments):

ScriptAlias /mailman/ /var/mailman/cgi-bin/
Alias /pipermail/ /var/mailman/archives/public/
<Directory /var/mailman/archives>
        Options +FollowSymlinks

Any of this seem wrong to you?
