[Mailman-Users] Mailman 2.1.1/ OpenBSD 3.3 / setgid problems

I'm trying to install the MailMan 2.1.1 package on OpenBSD 3.3 in the 
default 'chroot'-ed Apache environment.

It looks to me as though the setgid on the cgi scripts isn't working.

An example would be, ~mailman/cgi-bin/admin has these permissions:

-rwxr-sr-x  1 mailman  mailman  41626 Mar 20 07:36 admin

Which to my mind means that when this file is executed by the webserver 
(uid: www, gid: www), that it should take on the group-id bit of the 
'admin' program and execute as 'mailman'.

But it fails with this error:

IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 

But this file is
-rw-rw----  1 mailman  mailman  3338 May 31 05:38 config.pck

Has anyone tried this configuration and got it working? Anyone got any 

Thanks for any suggestions
