Sorry about that last posting, I guess I was a little trigger happy ....

Looking at the error found in apache's suexec_log I'd assume that
/home2/mailman/cgi-bin  would have permissions
rwxrwsrwx   but as you can see below, only the owner and mailman's group
have write permissions to the cgi-bin directory.

Anyone know what the cause of this error is ?

Thanks a lot,

Take a look at the error message. What does the phrase "directory is
writable by others"  mean?
