I'm really struggling to resolve this issue.
I'm trying to get mailman working on ubuntu server 10.04, python version is 2.6

When I go to http://[domain]/cgi-bin/mailman/admin I get this message
Bug in Mailman version 2.1.13

We're sorry, we hit a bug!

Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited,
but the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.

So I looked at the logs and got this:
Sep 09 10:54:31 2010 (6583) Uncaught runner exception: [Errno 2] No
such file or directory:
Sep 09 10:54:31 2010 (6583) Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/lib/mailman/Mailman/Queue/Runner.py", line 100, in _oneloop
    msg, msgdata = self._switchboard.dequeue(filebase)
  File "/var/lib/mailman/Mailman/Queue/Switchboard.py", line 154, in dequeue
    fp = open(filename)
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:

Sep 09 10:54:31 2010 (7283) Failed to unlink/preserve backup file:

I'm not sure if it's relevant but when I go to
http://[domain]/cgi-bin/mailman/ I get "You don't have permission to
access /cgi-bin/mailman/ on this server."

I've been trying to fix this for approxamitely 14 hours so it is
highly likely that something I tried during that time has broken
At one point it did actually work but I can't even remember what I did
to break it again.
