It means precisely what it says.  The wrapper script was run as gid 1, but was
compiled to run as gid 105.  (Without knowing what you've put in your
/etc/groups file, it's hard to say what named groups those are).  

The solution is also precisely in that message: reconfigure to take gid 1
(for the mail-gid at least).
