The Apache restrictions on the suEXEC module conflict with Mailman's
security model. If possible, don't use suEXEC for the Mailman CGIs.

If you have to use suEXEC, I think you will have to make the suEXEC
user and group the same as the owner and group of the wrappers (in
$prefix/cgi-bin) and possibly remove the SETGID bit from the wrappers.

and <http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/suexec.html> for further detail.

Note that I have no experience with suEXEC so I may be wrong about
this, but that's how it looks to me.
