[Mailman-Users] check_perms

I am running a Linux Mandrake 8.0 system with apache and sendmail.

I managed to get Mailman running, however for reasons I will not go into,
I removed and restart the install from scratch - going back as far as to
re-untar and recreate the mailman user (after userdel -r'ing)...

Now when I get to the step where i run check_perms, it gives me the
following error:

[mailman at hitchhiker mailman]# bin/check_perms
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "bin/check_perms", line 281, in ?
  File "bin/check_perms", line 202, in checkmail
    mode = statmode(wrapper)
  File "bin/check_perms", line 74, in statmode
    return os.stat(path)[ST_MODE]
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/mailman/mail/wrapper'

Sure enough there is nothing in the mail directory - I have tried
re-installing several times as end with the same error (and checking
using root).

Any help would be appreciated!
