	I installed Mailman 1.0rc3 under FreeBSD 2.2.8. I'm also running
sendmail 8.9.3.

	I created the test list, and received the message telling me
about the new list being created just fine. The web pages seem to work
OK as well.

	However, if I try to subscribe to the test list I get:

	I'm guessing it's a permissions issue somewhere, but:

> bin/check_perms
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "bin/check_perms", line 160, in ?
  File "bin/check_perms", line 76, in checkall
    os.path.walk(mm_cfg.PREFIX, checkwalk, STATE)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python1.5/posixpath.py", line 253, in walk

    func(arg, top, names)
  File "bin/check_perms", line 52, in checkwalk
    except OSError, (code, msg):
NameError: OSError

	At any rate, I did do the chmod commands listed in the INSTALL
file, and the file permissions are drwxrwsr-x within the ~mailman
