That's consistent with the traceback in your original post. The
traceback showed that the 'owner' script which would have been trying
to store a message to somelist-owner at ... could not create the queue
entry in the qfiles/in/ directory. It died and the wrapper reported
this back to the MTA.

Your original post showed that the message was shunted:

Is there a file named
.pck in qfiles/shunt?

Also, as I look more closely at the original traceback, it is unusual
in that entries usually only have the pid and yours say 'mailowner
(pid)', and I don't know what 'mailowner' is.

What do your sendmail aliases for Mailman look like? Normally, they all
pipe to /var/mailman/mail/mailman with different arguments. Do yours
pipe to other commands like maybe /var/mailman/mail/mailowner? If so,
is the file(s) group Mailman and SETGID?
