Have you run bin/check_perms?

If not, please run it as root with -f until it runs clean. It will fix
all sorts of problems. The problem above could be that the
cgi-bin/listinfo wrapper is not group 'list' and SETGID or the 'list
group does not have access to the
/var/lib/mailman/lists/mailman/config.pck file.
