More on this...
When mailman is launched from procmail, the gid of the process is
apparently assigned to the mailman user's primary group (from the passwd
file). I recompiled mailman with groupname AND mail-gid both set to
"mail", but still got the error ... until I edited passwd to change the
user's primary group, and now it works.
Does anyone see any problems with this? Basically, everywhere that I can
change what the group is, I've changed it to "mail."
