Two things here. Apache directive names (as opposed to arguments) are
case-insensitive, so your change above shouldn't make any difference.
And, assuming /etc/httpd/conf/magic is the default, I don't think this
could be involved.

If this were my problem, I would run a packet sniffer on the host and
make sure that the cookie is being properly returned in the GET and
POST requests.

Or I might start by modifying Mailman/Cgi/admin.py to log some
additional debugging information - in particular,
