[Mailman-Users] Permission problems

I've got a Mailman problem. Surprised?  :)
After a reboot the mailing-lists stopped working.
Mailing a specific person is still working though. I
use exim and Mailman. Let's start from the
beginning. This line is in /etc/inetd.conf:

smtp stream tcp nowait mail /usr/sbin/exim exim -bs

When I send a mail to selinux-drift mailing-list I
get this in /var/log/exim/mainlog

I don't know what should be here, but it seems to be
ok. I now assume that Mailman got the mail that it's
supposed to forward to everyone on the list. Right?
The mailman configuration is:
selinux-drift: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post

/home/mailman/bin/check_perms returns "No problems

The mailman logs

Aug 25 13:43:03 2002 (13379) Could not acquire
qrunner lock

/home/mailman/logs/post shows all sendings that
succeeded. There's no entry from Aug 21.
/home/mailman/logs/bounce shows no entry after Aug 18.

The most interesting is /home/mailman/logs/error. I
attached it. The last line says:
IOError:  [Errno 13] Permission denied:

Seems there's something wrong with the permissions.

$ ls -ld qfiles
drwxrwsr-x 2 root mailman 28672 Aug 25 23:29 qfiles/

In the qfiles directory every .db and .msg file has:
-rw-rw-r-- 1 list mailman

Anyone have any clue what's wrong here?
