OK, i found what was wrong : mail wrapper isn't running with the right
gid/uid, but i trid both 0 and 65534 id (./configure
--with-mail-gid=65534 or 0) : if i set it to 0, Mailman answers it
should be 65534, and if i set it to 65534, that it should be 0...
I don't understand... I think i'm not far away from the success, but...

Thanks again to the hole list.
