```  Here's another possibility, which might give more flexibility (not sure). I
couldn't figure out how to combine the "or" statements inside one Cases
argument -- any clues?

In[1011]:= Cases[Cases[mylist, Except[{___, a, b, ___}]],
Except[{___, b, a, ___}]]

Out[1011]= {{a, c, b}, {b, c, a}}

Cheers,
C.O.
