There is another issue not mentioned in the original report and that is
that aliases.db must be owned by the Mailman user so Postfix runs the
pipe as the Mailman user and group.

bin/check_perms would check/fix this and also ensure the mode is at
least 0660, but I've gone a step further and now ensure these things at
the time the postalias and postmap commands are run and also ensure the
mode is at least 0664 so Postfix doesn't need to be in Mailman's group.
