[Mailman-Users] Desperation Time! :)

I've been struggling with this issue off and on for months, and it's
time to beg, grovel, and plead for help.
mail sent to "listname" or "listname-request" seems to go into the
ether-bitbucket, often with a "DSN unknown mailer error 1"
At first, I thought the problem was the lockfile issue mentioned for
BSD machines using older version of python, so yesterday I installed
version 1.5 final. No change. Then I thought maybe it was a
mail-gid problem, but after several experiments changing the
GID and noticing the result, that isn't the problem either.
I am running sendmail with smrsh and procmail as the local delivery
agent. I am *also* running majordomo lists on the same machine,
which also uses a "wrapper" program placed in .../sm.bin, so I'm
wondering now if the problem is that I renamed mailman's wrapper
from "wrapper" to "mmwrapper" in the ~mailman/mail directory,
the .../sm.bin/ directory, *and* in the /etc/aliases file
for the mailing list. I'm new to python so a "find -exec grep"
through the mailman sources turned up some references to wrapper
but I'm not sure if they were variablized or hardcoded.
Any help is appreciated.
