I believe there's a FollowSymLinks option or something like that.  Is
it possible that /local/mailman/teamnet/cgi-bin is a symlink?

Something changed in handling CGI between 2.2 and 2.4, but that may
have been external (eg, I switched to WSGI for my Python CGIs, and
ISTR that some of the *CGI accelerator modules didn't get updated).

This stanza needs to come *before* any Alias stanzas that refer to
/local/, /local/mailman/, or /local/mailman/teamnet/, IIRC.  I don't
think the config processor is smart enough to find the "best" match.

You probably thought of all that already.  Just for the record.

Good luck!
