[Mailman-Users] Messages silently disappearing

I have a little more information on this problem.  In
/home/mailman/logs/errors I get the error messages I have appended
below.  Looks like there is a problem with permissions.  Weird, because
I thought I set the thing up exactly as instructed.  My sendmail runs as
"daemon" and so I configured mailman to run as daemon.  Also, I did a
"chgrp mailman ." and a "chmod a+rx,g+sb ." in /home/mailman where the
installed program resides.  Something obviously needs to be tweaked. 
Might it be something to do with umask?
