This was posted on MacInTouch today; it might help the person who was 
having trouble with Mailman on Mac OS X...

A new Apple KB article 
<http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=107906> offers a workaround 
for a repair permissions problem with mailing lists on Mac OS X Server 
(apparently fixed in Mac OS X Server 10.3.4):

Using the "Repair Disk Permissions" feature in Disk Utility can disable or 
impair mailing lists. Repair Disk Permissions changes the group permission 
from the "mailman" to "wheel" for many items at /usr/share/mailman. This 
stops mailman processes from running with the correct permissions and can 
interrupt lists' operation.
