You have to set the ownership and permissions of the ~mailman/aliases*
files carefully or sendmail complains about an unsafe dbm file.
I've experimented a bit and found the following works fine:
# ls -alg /home/mailman/aliases*
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root mailman 1869 Jul 29 23:43 /home/mailman/aliases
-rw-r--r-- 1 root mailman 4096 Jul 29 23:44 /home/mailman/aliases.dir
-rw-r--r-- 1 root mailman 2048 Jul 29 23:44 /home/mailman/aliases.pag
