Hem... well I fixed my problem though I could not really explain what happened

just de-installed the package, re-installed it...

the only stuf I chenged was creating the list manually with "# newlist 
pcsc-perl-users mail" instead of using the web front-end.

Things are working as expected now. I guess that it was a filesystem right 
problem because I am using a 'secure' version of mandrake... if 'secure' 
means something ;o) anyway...

This is my guess because check_perms returns a LOT of errors (more than a 
thousand). This time I had not run it with -f and it seems to work anyway.

well I just hope these comments may help a few other people reading the 

bye bye! and thanx for your reading :o)

Tout a une fin, sauf le saucisson qui en a deux.
