Here is error message:

Cron <mailman at ussu1> /sw/bin/python -S /usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 222, in ?
   File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 203, in main
   File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 140, in process_lists
     mlist = MailList.MailList(listname, lock=0)
   File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 79, in __init__
   File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 892, in Load
     dict, e = self.__load(dbfile)
   File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 869, in __load
     fp = open(dbfile)
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 

Now is this permissions regarding the Python process? I *temporarily* 
changed the permissions of the config.db to 0777. The email waiting to 
be sent in the list was sent and seems to work but then the permissions 
of the config.db are rewritten to the proper permissions automagically.

Did I miss something here with the install?
