It is not a group mismatch error. If it were, you would get a specific
'group mismatch' response from the wrapper and would never get as far
as getting the 'no such list' or 'unauthorized' messages.

I think it is your web server, but I don't know specifically what. See
for a brief description of a problem where the system language was
Turkish and the web server was misspelling certain environment
variable names with Turkish characters. You may have a similar problem.
