I'm just as puzzled ;-)

I don't know. I shut down each installation of mailman via the 
/etc/init.d/mailman.$domain init script before doing the `make && make 
install` after specific configuration options for each install.

I suppose it's possible a stray process was still running?

Anyway, the problem is sorted for now and I have some additional info for a 
single source of the pythonlibs. Now just to make sure a future upgrade path 
isn't compromised by opting for this.
