You have permissions issues on the stuff you moved.

Are your attempts to access the lists via the web giving "we hit a bug"?

In any case, as root run Mailman's 'bin/check-perms -f'. It tends to
have issues with symlinks and may continue to report issues on the
symlink even though the target is fixed. That will probably help.
