Sorry for the followup, but this looks like it's fixed now.  What I did to
fix it:
A) Manually touched ~mailman/logs/error and ~mailman/logs/post
B) chmod'ed 777 the two files above.
C) Made mail/wrapper mode 6755 (so it's setuid also)

This seems to have gotten me to the point where:
A) list administration via the web works;
B) email to the list is going through and out.

The only problem remaining is that mass subscribes of users do not result in
all the users getting the welcome message.  ARGH!

Boy, this was so much easier on sendmail.
