Unfortunately I tried that, both /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages and 
/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages, no luck.

Both mailman and python2.4 were installed using binary packages that are 
apart of Ubuntu.  Mailman's error log shows the same version as when I 
execute python from the command line.  Do you think it would be 
beneficial to re-install mailman, perhaps from a tar ball?
