Your permissions on /usr/local/mailman/data/aliases* are wrong.
See this newly created FAQ entry:
(Please feel free to correct/update/clarify the entry if I've missed
something in creating it.)
BTW, Barry (or any other MM hackers), check_perms doesn't give a warning if
data/aliases.db isn't group writable. If it's not, list creation via the
web produces the error above. List creation via bin/newlist still works,
however. It might save some folks some frustration if check_perms caught
this and fixed it.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit
