    Errr, I was wrong.  It helps if I wasn't the one logged in, making 
administrative changes, and also checking on the archives at the same 
time.  Once I used a different browser, it worked just fine (non-members 
and not-logged-in members can't get to the private archives.)  So, that 
means that so far, mailman is working quite nicely within a suexec 
environment, with the set-gid bit removed from all the scripts that 
reside in /cgi-bin/.  Disclaimer: I'm still not 100% sure whether 
removing the set-gid bits will have any adverse complications later.  
I'm still in the early stages of testing.  So please don't quote me on 
it working fine under this environment.

W | I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
