I'm sure there is a simple answer to this problem, but I've spent all
afternoon on it and no joy so far.

When I send a reply to the list regarding a subscription, I get this
in my sendmail log:

Dec 20 16:22:16 ds9 Mailman mail-wrapper: Failure to exec script.
WANTED gid 1, GOT gid 12.  (Reconfigure to take 12?) 
Dec 20 16:22:16 ds9 sendmail[16424]: eBKGMG416423:
to="|/share/mailman/linux/mail/wrapper mailcmd mailmantest",
ctladdr=<mailmantest-request at smtl.co.uk> (8/0), delay=00:00:00,
xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=prog, pri=60013, dsn=5.3.0, stat=unknown
mailer error 2

I have tried configuring with  --with-mail-gid=mail  
daemon and mailman. Whatever I put here doesn't make any difference to
the error - always WANTED gid 1, GOT gid 12

Apart from this it seems to work fine :-(
