This behavior points to permission trouble. Be sure, that the right user
and group id have the permission to handle the lists directory and the
lists file. Permissions usually have to be set to 664 at least.

I dont know anything about this l.listname file. The listname.new is an

A normal list config of one of my lists is:
test: "|/home/majordomo/majordomo-1.94.4/wrapper resend -l test
test-request: "|/home/majordomo/majordomo-1.94.4/wrapper request-answer
