Summary: syntax error in CheckFixUid.py

Initial Comment:
bin/CheckFixUid.py is created by bin/check_perms_grsecurity.py. It has a syntax error that keeps mailman from starting up.

Reproducable: always

Steps to reproduce:
1. run bin/check_perms_grsecurity.py -f
2. run bin/mailmanctl start

The error:
NameError: name 'uid' is not defined
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/qrunner", line 80, in ?
    import CheckFixUid
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/CheckFixUid.py", line 6, in ?
    class CheckFixUid:
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/CheckFixUid.py", line 12, in CheckFixUid
    if os.geteuid() != uid:

A proposed fix is attached.

Since it is part of the official distribution and is also in you SVN, I
thought you'd like to quickly apply a fix to it.

Anyway, I'll contact the contributor.

These are not GNU Mailman scripts. They must be part of some
redistribution. Please report this bug to your packager. There's nothing
the Mailman project can do about it.

I forgot: You need to start Mailman as root for the error to occur.
