I've had this same problem for quite a while on some of my lists. It
drives me bonkers.

> /list/listname directory before the list would function. If I don't
> do this, I get the "we've hit a bug" message in the browser when I
> try to access the list info.
> 2) New problem - I've created a new list for the first time in a few
> months, and set the file permissions just like other lists I have
> that work fine. After getting everything set up and configured, I
> try and send messages through. The first message comes through OK,
> but subsequent submissions are rejected by Postfix because the
> config.db permissions are wrong. Sure enough, config.db group has
> been set to root. The web pages aren't accessible anymore either.

> messages to the list quickly they all come through. But if I wait a
> minute or so, invariably there is an error and the ownership is back
> at root.
