	The problem is that you need to get your web server (apache?), 
your mail server (postfix?  exim?  sendmail?), and Mailman to all 
agree as to what GID everything should be running as.

	When upgrading, it is usually easiest to make the new piece of 
software agree with the other two, by replicating the configuration 
options that were used on the previous version that was installed.

	Beyond that, it's going to depend on what your web server and 
mail server are, and how they are configured.
