[Mailman-Users] htdig error

I've got ht://dig working nicely, but I get an error message each time the 
nightly cron job runs:

From: root at svr01.thcwd.com (Cron Daemon)
To: mailman at svr01.thcwd.com
Subject: Cron <mailman at svr01> /usr/local/bin/python2.2 -S 
X-Cron-Env: <SHELL=/bin/sh>
X-Cron-Env: <HOME=/var/mailman>
X-Cron-Env: <PATH=/usr/bin:/bin>
X-Cron-Env: <LOGNAME=mailman>

/bin/sort: /opt/www/htdig/db/sort99SAvz: Permission denied
htmerge: Word sort failed

/bin/sort: /opt/www/htdig/db/sortTjcbiZ: Permission denied
htmerge: Word sort failed

      The cron job and /opt/www/htdig/db/ both have the permissions 
root:mailman .  The /opt/www/htdig/db/ has no files in it.  My 
/opt/www/htdig/conf/htdig.conf reads:

database_dir:           /opt/www/htdig/db

      My individual list folders 
(../mailman/archives/private/<LISTNAME>/htdig/) have the proper files and 
they update correctly.  Everything seems to run correctly.  Is this 
ht://dig "going back to it's roots" and trying to do something I have no 
need for?
