I'm not sure exactly what's happening, but "Failed to exec mailman
wrapper: unable to determine caller's group name" seems to be an issue
with the group that Qmail is using to invoke the mail wrapper.
The wrapper doesn't issue that exact message (at least not in the
source distribution), but it can issue a message like
Failure to find group name <group>. Try adding this group
to your system, or re-run configure, providing an
existing group name with the command line option --with-mail-gid.
Failure to find group name for GID <gid1>. Mailman
expected the mail wrapper to be executed as group
"<group>", but the system's mail server executed the
wrapper as GID <gid2> for which the name could not be
found. Try adding GID <gid2> to your system as "<group>",
or tweak your mail server to run the wrapper as group
If this is the issue, the most likely cause is Qmail is invoking the
wrapper with a group ID that isn't registered on your system.
