is there any other way to find this out?  I'd already killed my source tree
after a month of running successfully.  I apparently didn't get the correct
gid when I updated to 1.1final.. all the mail accounts on the server that
are subscribed to a mailman list appear to be having their permissions

I untarred my rc1 on top of the newer 1.1 in hopes to have the old wrapper
running again but it appears not to have given me a temp solution to the
mail errs.

Thanks for the help folks!    (No Sarcasm <tm>)

Yes.  You may also need to copy additional templates to each list

An easy way is to look at the top of the 'config.status' file in your old
build directory.  The arguments you used for ./configure will be in the top
comment block.
