You were absolutely right.  There was an error in the uid/gid mappings.  But
I believe that's out of the way now since now I get other errors. *sigh*  It
never ends!  Maybe I'd kill the .rpm install and do one from scratch

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 40, in ?
    from Mailman import MailList
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 36, in ?
    from Mailman import Utils
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Utils.py", line 45, in ?
    from Mailman import Crypt
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Crypt.py", line 19, in ?
    if mm_cfg.USE_CRYPT:
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'USE_CRYPT'

And then in next mess I get: 

/usr/bin/python: can't open file '/usr/lib/mailman/cron/senddigests'


/usr/bin/python: can't open file '/usr/lib/mailman/cron/gate_news'

-> Then I guess you will have to check what uid/gid has write permissions
-> over the /var/lib/mailman/locks/ directory and compare this for
-> compatibilty  with the uid that the Mailman crontab has been installed
-> under.
-> I would expect then both to be the 'mailman' uid (as decided by the
-> installer when Mailman was configured) but plainly they cannot be
-> compatible or you would not have a permissions failure when the cron
-> job is (presumably) trying to create a lock file in the directory.
