That's a Suse question. Standard GNU Mailman has no such message. Read
the Suse Mailman docs to see what they say about this.

No. Suse changed the wrapper and the message you got is it.

OK, I googled a bit and found

They patch out all the nice error messages and instead put in their own
stuff. The error in the subject means the file
/etc/mailman/mailman.cgi-gid doesn't exist. It should exist and if I
read the code correctly, contain the numeric GID of the web server.
