This is probably caused by the popen-doesn't-inherit-setgid bug
exhibited on some Linux systems (I still don't know exactly *which*
Linux distributions this affects -- definitely not RH5.x).  This
should be fixed in 1.0b9, which will hopefully be released this

Check the mailman-developers or mailman-users archives if you want
more information in the meantime.
