You can use the master site password to log in the admin page and change 
the list password.  If you can not use GUI for any other reason, then 
use bin/withlist to change the password with a little trick like this:

% bin/withlist test
Loading list test (unlocked)
The variable `m' is the mm-test MailList instance
 >>> import sha
 >>> p = 'newpass'
 >>> cp = sha.new(p).hexdigest()
 >>> m.Lock()
 >>> m.password = cp
 >>> m.Save()
 >>> m.Unlock()
