The bin/* scripts are NOT setgid and 'bin/check_perms -f' will not make
them setgid. This is generally a good thing because in general you
don't want anyone who happens to have access to the box to be able to
run the bin/* scripts. They should only be runnable by a user in the
mailman group or root.
In Jana's case, adding 'tomcat' to the mailman group should allow
'tomcat' to successfully run the scripts.
