Here's one of the mails I get every 5 minutes from my server:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 274, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 249, in main
  File "/var/tmp/mailman-2.1.1-build/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/LockFile.py",
line 238, in lock
  File "/var/tmp/mailman-2.1.1-build/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/LockFile.py",
line 415, in __write
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:

And when I look in '/var/mailman/locks' that dir is empty!
Also, in '/var/tmp' there's only one entry, a subdir named 'vi.recover'

There's something wrong, but I don't know where to start looking.  It's
installed on a SuSE system based on United Linux 1.0 and the mailman package
is a SuSE distributed one.
