 Any reason why you're using different UID.GID combinations, instead of the
default mailman.mailman?  I have mailman running on my server with three
different installations (under three different directories), and all of them
are running using mailman.mailman.  It's a lot easier and poses less
headaches as well.

 My List server:

 <mailman at battlezone:~> echo $HOME

<mailman at battlezone:~> ls -lAF
total 20
-rwxr--r--   1 mailman  mailman    296 Feb  4 01:53 clear-locks*
drwxrwsr-x  19 mailman  mailman   4096 Jan 29 13:25 lists.diarist.net/
drwxrwsr-x  19 mailman  mailman   4096 Jan 29 13:52 lists.pcraft.net/
drwxrwsr-x  19 mailman  mailman   4096 Feb  4 02:11 lists.yeehaw.net/
drwxr-xr-x  13 mailman  mailman   4096 Feb  3 11:47 mailman-2.0/

 Each one of those 'lists.domain' combination is a separate installation of
mailman, running individual lists of their own.  All of them under
mailman.mailman.  All webpages for each individual list server goes to the
correct location under each installation.

 The mainman-2.0 directory is just the source, for future (re)installs.
