In addition to my previous reply, I have no idea whether
dpkg-reconfigure accepts the same options as Mailman's configure
script, but the latter options are --with-mail-gid= to set the
expected group for the mail wrapper and --with-cgi-gid= to set the
expected group for the CGI wrappers.

There is a --with-groupname= (not --with groupname=) option too, but
that has nothing to do with group mismatch errors. That sets the
Mailman group to be other than 'mailman' if for some reason you don't
want Mailman's group to be mailman.

See <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node7.html>.
