This error is occurring when Mailman is trying the save the current
configuration for the mailman list. It has saved it to a temp name and
now is trying to rotate the files - i.e. remove config.pck.last, and
rename config.pck to config.pck.last and the temp name to config.pck,
but its attempt to unlink config.pck.last results in the above.

Mark Sapiro <msapiro at value.net>       The highway is for Hi again,
	Thanks Mark, that was pretty much what I thought. I am 
running OSX 'client' 10.3.8, so it's a stock source installation of 
Mailman 2.1.5 on Postfix, not anything Apple has modified. Have you 
any suggestions as to how to prevent this happening in the future. 
It's the first error Mailman has generated since it was installed 
some months ago.


	Bye for now, Terry Allen
