Suddenly customers cant manage their mailinglists anymore.

I do see Mailman 2.1.9 ( a newer is out tho ).
As i know Mailman quite well (dutch translator until year 2002 when someone else did take over), i can not find any problem.

aliasses etc are in httpd.conf. I did a complete manual recompile from source (after cleaning) and then a /script/reinstallmailman

All looks well, no errors. But still 500 error.
I do only see core.* files

It is working again.

I did manualy updated the version from lists.org mailmans home website to 2.1.11rc2 (06-06-2008) (cPanels version is 2.1.9).
Changed the version in install-mailman script and ran /scripts/reinstallmailman. after this the web interface works fine again.
