Not really so odd. If you ran bin/newlist as a user who had permission
to write aliases.db (root?), everything could have succeeded even
though newalias might fail when run from the web script.

True. When Mailman/MTA/Postfix.py runs POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD, it checks the
status (returned by os.system()) and logs any error in the 'error'
log. It's strange that nothing was logged here.
