Scratch the last comment. Apparently, the config.pck and other pck files are
recreated every time the cron runs. The problem is that when this file is
recreated, the permissions are such that mailman cannot modify that file.
For example, my config.pck file for all the lists on my mailman server are
automatically created with permissions with user apache. However, mailman is
not an authorized owner.

What should I do? Should I try and make the config.pck file default to
mailman ownership?
