[Mailman-Users] "Permission denied" errors when queueing message

I'm attempting to set up MailMan 1.0b8 on a Slackware 3.2 system, with
Python 1.51.  The CGI interface works fine, the only thing that doesn't
is when it tries to queue a message to send.  The output from the error
log is below.  I can't figure out which file it is trying to open and
getting "permission denied".  I'm also not that familiar with Python, so
if someone could help me out here it would be much appreciated.  Thanks.
