Although there are some threads in the mail archive to this problem, i
think this one is slightly different so i decided to ask here...

I'm getting the following error:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----               
"|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"                                         
    (expanded from: <test at ision.net>)                                           
   ----- Transcript of session follows -----                                    
Failure to exec script. WANTED gid d, GOT gid d.  (Reconfigure to take d?)      
554 "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"... unknown mailer error 2           

Unlike the other posters before, there's a gid of "d" mentioned, where a
number should be in place...

Then, mailman has been installed correctly with its own uid and gid:

uid=5555(mailman) gid=5555(mailman)

When executing the often mentioned check_perms as user mailman, it says
that there are no problems found.

mail:~ $ id
uid=5555(mailman) gid=5555(mailman)
mail:~ $ pwd
mail:~ $ ls -laF mail
total 56
drwxrwsr-x   2 mailman  mailman      512 Oct 10 15:21 ./
drwxrwsr-x  18 mailman  mailman      512 Oct 10 15:51 ../
-rwxr-sr-x   1 mailman  mailman    25904 Oct 10 15:21 wrapper*
mail:~ $ 

Any hints on that? I really wanted to get rid of majordomo :-)

With kind regards,
