I think I've been barking up the wrong tree.  Looking more closely at 
the error, I see the above text.  I've been trying to figure out why 
Python and mailman can't find the user "mailman" when that's possibly 
not the real problem.  It would appear the problem lies in the file 

Where is conftest.py located and what should the permissions be?  
02755?  mailman:mailman?
