[Mailman-Users] Can't run qrunner because of permissions problem

Because I was having so much difficulty with my old, established Mailman 
installation on one of our Suns, I decided to try installing Mailman on a 
different machine to see if I get better results there.  I've installed the 
latest version of Mailman but when I try running mailmanctl to start up the 
qrunner, I get the following message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "bin/mailmanctl", line 547, in ?
   File "bin/mailmanctl", line 410, in main
     fp = open(mm_cfg.PIDFILE, 'w')
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 

I've checked the permissions with check_perms and there are no permissions 
problems indicated.  Anybody have any idea what is going on here?

Thanks very much,
