Argh. Still having problems. So I think there was a problem with the
default mailman package, so I blew it away and reinstalled the RPM
from scratch. This added a mailman home directory (good), but I still
couldn't su (bad). Used vipw and changed mailman's shell from
/sbin/nologin to /bin/bash. Can now log in, but there's no cron, and
running mailmanctl results in nothing happening. Any ideas??
