I had a problem with this, because majordomo uses a program called "wrapper"
as well, so I had to call the mailman one something else.  In my case, I
called it "mailman_wrapper" and had the aliases exectute
/etc/smrsh/mailman_wrapper instead of /home/mailman/mail/wrapper.  When I get
rid of my last majordomo list, I'll change my aliases over.
