I found out that the mailman user was no longer a member of the mailman
So, I logged in as root, and added mailman to the mailman group.

For a couple hours, this error message stopped.

However, after a couple hours, the same error message about mailman not
being allowed permission to run the file is emailed to me again.

I log into the server as mailman, type in groups, and find out that mailman
is again, no longer a part of the mailman group.

I didn't change any permissions.
Could there be some script that is automatically removing mailman from the
mailman group?
