Are you sure you're executing the command as the mailman group?
chmod g+s /usr/local/mailman/bin/add_members
and see if that helps. If it does, the problem is with the group
executing the command.
You don't want to leave add_members as SETGID if non Mailman admins
have shell access to your box as SETGID will allow anyone to
successfully run the command.
