Then I don't think I can help :-( Your original post said the you built
mailman with uid=gid=mailman and the wrapper seems to be executing
correctly based on a subsequent post. All looks good from here. Here is
the sequence that should be happening, see if you can find any reason
why its not:

apache invokes the cgi wrapper as the user 'apache', the cgi wrapper
verifies it was called by apache, then the wrapper does a setgid to
mailman and invokes the driver script, the driver script should be group
mailman, so it should have no problems reading the driver script, but
that is what is failing, go figure, seems like it should work.
