Other issues in your apache config.

The Directory section should be "/usr/local/mailman/", not
"/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/". This is primarily for public archives.
Also, if you are going to have public archives, you want

 Alias /pipermail/ /usr/local/mailman/archives/public/

Finally, the AddHandler is superfluous for Mailman. The only GGIs
executed by Apache for Mailman are the compiled wrappers in
usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/ which normally have no extension (unless
you specified --with-cgi-ext to configure). Python scripts are
executed indirectly by the wrapper, not directly by Apache.
