Mailman doesn't add things to the aliases file, and the exim
configuration I describe does not use aliases for the list functions -
instead it tests the address (with appropriate prefix/suffix removal)
against the existance of a file within the mailman tree - this tells it
whether a list exists.

it looks for a list construct...

and it either doesn't exist or is inacessible - actually check the
permissions against the user that exim runs as (although that appears to
be root here so thats not the problem unless NFS is in the mix)

things to check:-
1. Is your mailman installation under /home/mailman
[if not change the macro at the top of the exim config]
2. Does /home/mailman/lists/test22-users exist (or
appropriate prefixed directory from (1).
3. Is there a config.db in there and accessible
(at least to see - don't need to be able to access it)
from the uid/gid that exim runs under.
