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

Thanks for you response, Mark.  However, I've tried running mailmanctl both 
as root and as mailman and it still fails with the permission denied error 
on the pid file.  So now I'm wondering if there is some kind of 
incompatibility between the new version of Mailman and Solaris 8?  We have 
run Mailman 2.1.2 successfully on Solaris 8 before, but we recently 
upgraded to 2.1.5.  If anybody has any further suggestions for things to 
try, I'd appreciate hearing them.
