[Mailman-Users] permissions or smrsh?

Hi folks.  I'm getting the following message on my mailman installation in 
a virtual server.  In any case a script isn't being run with the right 
permissions, but I'm not sure where the problem lies.  I do have a symbolic
link to wrapper in my /etc/smrsh directory.  I'll include the entire
mail, just in case someone can glean something.

TIA if anyone has any ideas.
