    My crontask runs as mailman.mailman, however the webserver runs as httpd.daemon.
Whenever something comes through over the web, config.db becomes httpd.mailman, however as
soon as the next crontask runs, everything becomes mailman.mailman again.

    All the files ought to be owned by mailman.mailman, and the sticky bit should help in
retaining the permissions even after the web server has changed.
