I'm using mailman mailinglists, only private lists are configured.

Mailman Administrator Authentication page 

After entering password and clicking on "Let me in" this message appears :

We're sorry, we hit a bug!

Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of 
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited, 
but the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.

Via listinfo (left below screen shows :

Why is the link "Mailman" shown on the screen, only public lists should
