Other way round.
The error is being reported by the mailman wrapper script.
It was invoked with GID 1001
It expected to be invoked with GID 6 (which should be the mail GID).

You have 2 choices - one of which may not be possible (I don't know
enough about qmail to comment):-

  1. Convince qmail to invoke the script (presumably from a
     list user/alias) with GID 6
     Don't know if this is possible given the qmail way of
     doing things

  2. Re-configure/install Mailman.  Change your configure line to
	./configure --prefix=/home/mailman \
	 --with-python=/usr/local/bin/python \
	 --with-username=mailman --with-groupname=mailman \
 	 --with-cgi-gid=nobody --with-mail-gid=1001 


Please don't post html or multipart/alternative to the list.  If you do
so (we can all make mistakes), then don't follow it up with a text only
