Eep. I take that back. Even after correcting the permissions, I still
get this error...

Very odd that it's referencing the file of the build directory not the
actual file in /usr/local/lib/mailman/Mailman -- however, I can rebuild
the archives of another list without running into this problem, so I
don't /think/ the problem is with the Mailman install itself.

Anything further I can do to debug this? Any idea what the "MemoryError"
refers to?
