Well, this has been running for awhile but I never bothered with the log 
files until now.  I just run a couple of small lists for our cub scout 
pack.  I don't even know if anyone uses digests.  It works fine for all 
the people, to the best of my knowledge.  But I'd like to get this error 
message from popping up everyday.

There is no bin directory under /home/mailman.

permissions on /home/mailman/lists/mailman/config.pck are:

-rw-rw----   1   mailman   mailman

Does that give any clues?
