I have mailman 2.1.4 on a mandrake 10.0 and have upgraded msec to version 
msec-0.44.2-1mdk but I still get a bug error when I try to confirm a 
subscription to a list.

I runned check_permissions -f and it didn't work, I gave a chwon apache.mail 
on all the /var/log/mailman subdirectory and it still didn't work and I also 
gave a chown 664 on /var/mailman/log and the error is:
