[Mailman-Users] web interface permissions ?

On a newly installed mailman setup, the "Submit All Data" button has no 
effect in the page "Tend to pending moderator requests". It doesn't 
matter if I select 'Accept' 'Reject' or 'Discard', the effect is the 
same - nothing.

On other admin pages I can do anything I want - add users, change 
defaults, etc, etc...

I'm wondering if this is a permissions issue?

I've checked /var/log/apache/* and /var/log/mailman/* plus the usual 
syslog files for errors, and I can't see anything obviously wrong.

This is pretty much a standard debian install with two lists: one 
'mailman' list and another.

I'm using mailman with Exim and had to make some small changes as 
suggested in the docs to get it to work, and the SMTP side of it seems 
to be perfectly fine - I just can't do things like discarding messages 
from non-members.

dpkg -l mailman gives me this:

ii  mailman  1:2.1.12-3     Powerful, web-based mailing list manager

Running "check_perms" gives me lots of permissions errors, but it was 
like that before I touched any of the config files, so I'm wondering if 
anyone else has had to fix this problem to get the mailman deb to work 

Many thanks,
