nah, everything goes worse.. I have updated to 2.1.7 and now it does not even deliver the messages..
 Another interesting detail that I noticed is; when I click on Logout, and then try to login, it does not authenticates me directly, and I can enter the web interface after a second login. After that, as i have described before, each click requires re-login. 
 Anyone having idea??

In the httpd.conf, there were a line: MIMEMagicFile /etc/httpd/conf/magic . This line was preventing me from starting the http service. and its status was :  httpd stopped but subsys locked!

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,
