[Mailman-Users] 1.0b8 problems on RH 5.2

First Mailman is cool. Thanks.

I've got it installed correctly, afaict. Sendmail runs as GID 12 on my
RH 5.2 box. I configured mailman --with-mail-gid=12.

I can create new lists, but no mail to a list ever gets
delivered. I've attached the message that bounces back. I'm also
quoting here from $PREFIX/logs/error:

I followed the thread about 'messages disappearing silently' and the
gid/popen() troubles on Linux. I don't *think* that's the problem
here; I tired both of Wes's 'workaround' fixes, and neither of them
worked. Mail fails in just the same way.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
