You might need to change the setting in Mac OS X Server Admin rather than manually changing it in mm_cfg.py. For example, when you add a directory in web sharing in the sharing prefpane, it's added to httpd.conf, and I think it will automatically be re-added if you remove it from httpd.conf without removing it from the web sharing prefpane.

Alternatively, you could install mailman from source/MacPorts/Fink and ignore the provided mailman...
