I change the aliases.db to be group writeable, and even tried setting the 
ownership to root:mailman, but "bin/check_perms" did not like that and set 
the permission back to mailman:mailman.  The aliase* files now look like 
(with no bin/check_perms issues reported):

-rw-rw-r--  1 mailman mailman 107000 Jun  6 08:59 aliases
-rw-rw-r--  1 mailman mailman 167936 Jun  6 08:59 aliases.db

but I am still seeing the same problem reported in the maillog:

Jun  6 10:52:07 lists postfix/local[20108]: warning: cannot find alias 
database owner for hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases(0,34100)

Any other thoughts, ideas, suggestions...?
