Your Mailman crontab is not correctly installed. The crontab.in or
whatever that you used is designed to be put in /etc/cron.d/, and thus
it has the executing userid as field 6 between the run times
parameters and the command.

If you install it with

crontab -u mailman crontab.in

or whatever the file name is, you first have to remove the 'mailman'
entries preceding the commands.
