I decided to take care of my file permission problems by performing an
upgrade to v1.1 (was using v1.0). Now things are 'different'.

I can get the listinfo html to display, but if someone tries to subscribe,
they are told that the list doesn't exist (although check_db says the list
is OK).

I can get the overall admin page to display, but when I click on a specific
list to administer, I get the following error:


Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/home/mailman/scripts/driver", line 112, in run_main
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Cgi/admin.py", line 65, in main
    lst = MailList.MailList(list_name)
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 62, in __init__
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 804, in Load
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 1373, in Lock
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/LockFile.py", line 186, in lock
    os.link(self.__lockfile, self.__tmpfname)
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied

I played around with file ownership to help fix this, but to no avial.
check_perms says all is still OK. Scratching my head.....
