Just to remove any thought of rights issues, how about setting the
rights to that file so that it is read/writable to all.

The current rights should look like this: 
   -rw-rw-r--   mailman   mailman

To set the file so that it is world writable:
   chmod a+w request.db

If it is still giving you problems, then it is not a rights issue (at
least not a file rights issue).

What OS are you using?  Are you on a BSD system?
Check /etc/passwd and make sure that the UID for mailman is unique.
Check /etc/group and make sure that the GID for mailman is unique.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
