[Mailman-Users] Problems getting wrapper to work with sendmail

I've followed the instructions for setting up Mailman v 2.0.6

userid: mailman
./configure --with-mail-gid=mail --with-cgi-gid=apache
mail handler: sendmail v8.11
system: Redhat Linux 7.1 for Alpha

Ran the test mailing list steps, but when sending a mail to
test at sharcnet.ca I get the following response:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"
    (reason: 550 5.1.1 User unknown)
    (expanded from: <test at sharcnet.ca>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
550 5.1.1 "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"... User unknown

Any ideas?  The alias is obviously there, but it seems like it's not
running or finding the wrapper.
