Yes, I did the --with-mail-gid parameter.  When that is not set properly 
the response is similar to what is suggested int he documentation for 
Mailman with an "Unknown mailer error 2" along with a notice about the 
wrong gid.

By the way, I can pipe a file through the same path to wrapper that is 
specified in the aliases file and no errors are generated.
