I just upgraded from 1.0b8 to the 1.0 release, and everything went
remarkably well. .... except for one thing - the symbolic links for
public archives isn't created.

I did read of similar articles in Jan 99's archives, and previously it
worked (no its not the followsymlink problem), but now the sym link
isn't created or removed. As both my mailman user and web server user, I
manually created the sym links and all was ok - but then changing the
list setting from public to private left the link there. I went back and
forth setting various lists to and from public/private and it didn't

I checked $prefix/logs/error and that was empty. I checked the relevant
syslog (we trap all mail messages to mail.log) and no errors were
present. I'm lost - it just won't make the sym link, and if it exists,
it won't remove it.... any ideas??
