I currently have a RedHat 7.2 with mailman 2.0.8-1 installed. I have 
several lists installed and they are functioning fine. I am getting some 
errors in the cron jobs relating to qrunner and several others. I decided 
to run check_perms to verify all the perms were correct. Here is the output 
from that command:

[root at helios mailman]# bin/check_perms -f
Traceback (innermost last):
   File "bin/check_perms", line 50, in ?
     MAILMAN_GRPNAME = grp.getgrgid(MAILMAN_GID)[0]
TypeError: illegal argument type for built-in operation

Mailman has a user account UID of 41and group account GID of 41. What does 
this error mean and how do I correct it?
