Sometimes the owner is root and sometimes mailman depending on just how
it was created. It's not important. The group is the important thing.
It should always be mailman and /var/mailman/mail/mailman and all the
files in /var/mailman/cgi-bin should be group mailman and SETGID.
check_perms would have caught any problems here.

Are you running SeLinux or anything else that would impose additional
access controls?
