I suspect this is Debian-specific.  Debian has a generic "list" user
and a generic "list" group, rather than Mailman, Majordomo, etc
users/groups.  They also seem to leave the tree owned by root rather
than list (which is what is recommended by Mailman), and maybe forget
a few chmod g+s's on the directories.

I don't use Debian's package myself but ran into this on another
system.  I had assumed that since check_perms was quite unhappy that
the other admin had installed halfway from source, but I've just run a
quick dpkg -L mailman informs me that that indeed was a debian
install.  I'll have to check their bug db later.
