The wrapper /var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman is dying with status 1. The
programmed exits for Mailman detected errors are all status >=2. This
could be a permissions issue or something else.

If you have a 'standard' Postfix/Mailman integration, the above command
("/var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post test-list") came from an aliases
(and aliases.db) file group owned by mailman. This means you should be
able to reproduce the error in a command shell with the commands

su mailman
/var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post test-list < /dev/null

That may help you debug further.
