[Mailman-Users] check_perms -f leads to cgi error

I'm fairly certain this problem was caused by my running check_perms -f when 
troubleshooting another issue, since resolved, but right after fixing that when attempting to access the web interface I got a 403 for everything. admin, 
listinfo, etc. I went to a backup of the site and copied the permissions for 
the cgi_bin and public_html (which contains symlinks to the actual cgi 
scripts.) Now apache is tossing a 500 (internal server e) and the error log 
Premature end of script headers: admin

I'm almost positive this started when I ran check_perms -f, if has anyone seen 
this kind of error before or has any ideas what could be the cause I'd really appreciate it.
