Caveat - I know virtually nothing about nginx, fcgiwrap and fastcgi.
It appears that PATH_INFO is not properly set (actually not set at all)
in the environment passed to the Mailman CGIs. A URL like
should invoke the Mailman CGI named sss and pass PATH_INFO=/aaa/bbb/ccc.
>From what I see in your nginx config, things like
fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
should do this, but compared to the guide at
http://wiki.nginx.org/Mailman you are missing
which could be the problem.
When you go to an 'admin' URL, do you get the admin overview page? This
would be consistent with missing PATH_INFO.
