[Mailman-Users] mm 2.0.11, web interface and file permissions

I'm using mailman 2.0.11, qmail 1.0.3, and apache 1.3.23 on
a linux 2.2 / glibc-2.1.3 system
mailman was configured with:
./configure --with-mail-gid=nofiles --with-cgi-gid=nobody
and ~mailman/bin/check_perms returns with no problems found
when run was root or mailman.
I set up a test list, and subscribed via email with no problem,
but after I use the web based admin interface
the file permissions for the config.db appears to be wrong
and mailman stops doing anything via email, including
sending mailing list messages and handling subscriptions.
ls -l ~mailman/lists/test/config.db
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 1706 Sep 14 2001 admindbpreamble.html
-rw-rw---- 1 nobody mailman 4537 Jun 7 22:36 config.db
-rw-rw---- 1 mailman mailman 4537 Jun 7 21:26 config.db.last
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 189 Sep 14 2001 handle_opts.html
ls -ld ~mailman/lists/test
drwsrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4096 Jun 7 22:36 /home/mailman/lists/test
If I force the config.db to be owned by mailman and permissions of
664 then things okay until I (as admin or list manager) or anyone
else (general subscriber) uses the web interface.
I was wondering if it could be a umask related problem, but that
wouldn't explain the change in owner would it?
What am I doing wrong?
