[Mailman-Users] Trying again with the latest version - bug in install doc?

I got 2.1.5 supposedly working, although it was failing to send messages to 
mailing list subscribers.  Anyway, instead of debugging that I have decided 
to try the latest version.

Installed from source using the default locations.  Everything looks smooth 
until genaliases.  Same problem as first time around, except that then I 
thought the reason was a fault in my settings in mm_cfg.py

bin/genaliases runs without any errors, but generates only data/aliases, not 

By the time we get to this step, the install docs have had me enter 
virtual-mailman in my postfix/main.cf, so the fact that it isn't generated 
breaks postfix very effectively.  Presumably some later step creates the 
circumstances under which virtual-mailman is created?

Anyway, my mm_cfg.py looks like this:

# Put YOUR site-specific settings below this line.
IMAGE_LOGOS = '/icons/'
MTA = 'Postfix'
POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['univexhosting.com']
DEFAULT_URL_HOST   = 'www.univexsystems.com'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'univexhosting.com'

# Because we've overriden the virtual hosts above add_virtualhost
# MUST be called after they have been defined.

root at server1 [/usr/local/mailman]# bin/genaliases

What am I missing here?
