Whenever a Mailman script needs special access privileges to some
Mailman file, this is done by a setGID (not setUID) wrapper. So yes,
you need to worry about group privileges.
I don't think there is a "fix Mailman's permissions" script -- yet.
You could try doing
# chown -R mailman.mailman /usr/lib/mailman
# chmod -R ug+rw,o-w /usr/lib/mailman
# find /usr/lib/mailman -type d | xargs chmod 2775
as a crude maybe-fix, bandaid-hack -- if you're _really_ desperate.
Someone _really_ should try writing that permission fixer script...
