[Mailman-Users] config.db changing ownership???

OK. It seems that whenever I configure and make install, mailman sets the
owner of 'config.db' and 'config.db.last' to 'nobody'. If I chown them to
'mailman' something seems to change them back to 'nobody'.

I set up configure like so

./configure --with-mail-gid=99 --with-cgi-gid=99 --with-username=mailman

Needless to say nothing works correctly when those two files have the owner
of 'nobody'. Once I chown them to 'mailman' life is good for about 5
minutes, then things stop working again because somehow those two file got
re owned by 'nobody'.

What is going on?
