Check the /home/mailman/logs/error file. I think you will see that
the wrappers failed because of "GID" problems (the group that mailman
runs as). Someone earlier posting the same kind of problem.

As far as I can tell, When it reports "wanted N, got N1", you need
to rebuild mailman (./configure --with-mail-gid=N1 where N1 is the
GID [group id]). I just built a new one last night, and for the life
of me, I cannot remember if I used N or N1 :-)
