[Mailman-Users] RuntimeError: command failed: /usr/sbin/postalias

I can access Mailman webpages just fine; however, after I fill in the
new list info and hit submit I get an error message ("Bug in Mailman
version 2.1.5 We're sorry, we hit a bug!.") Also, it seems that no
emails can be sent or received trough the list.

I've tried to add in mm_cfg.py the following two lines to solve the
problem (see error log below) but this didn't help either.

POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD = /usr/sbin/postalias 
POSTFIX_MAP_CMD = /usr/sbin/postmap

Python 2.3.5, Mailman 2.1.5, Postfix 2.1.5, Apache 2.0.54

Relevant error logs:
admin(3095): [----- Traceback ------]
admin(3095): RuntimeError: command failed: /usr/sbin/postalias
/var/lib/mailman/data/aliases (status: 1, Operation not permitted)
