What are the actual names of the wrappers in Mailman's cgi-bin
directory? Do they have a .cgi extension?

If they do not have a .cgi extension, I would put


in mm_cfg.py. If they do have a .cgi extension, but the web server is
looking for files with a .cgi.cgi (doubled) extension, I would look at
the web server config and see if it is rewriting the URLs to add the
second '.cgi' and, if so, remove that rewrite.

Also look at the various web page links and form action= URLs and
verify that they are correct.
