The problem is if you run check_perms from the bin directory of the *source* tree,
before installing it, it's trying to import paths.py, which is NOT in the bins dir; it's
over in misc.  Check the INSTALL file.  You run check_perms *after* you install,
from ~mailman, not from the source dir.  paths.py is installed into ~mailman/bin
by the installation procedure.  The source tree version is correctly telling you that there's
no pythom module called paths anywhere it's trying to look.
