This is a workaround. It is not the proper fix for the underlying
problem. The log files should not need to be owned by the web server
user because the wrappers are group mailman and SETGID, y the time the
web server wants to write a log, et should be executing with effective
GID 'mailman' and the logs should be group mailman and group writable.
