Did you add hash:/var/lib/mailman/date/aliases to the alias_maps setting
in your Postfix main.cf?

I have no idea why your file management GUI would show you one thing and
check_perms something else. what does command line "ls -l" show?
Are you running check_perms as root? If so, and for whatever reason,
check_perms doesn't fix it, you can always do
chgrp list /var/lib/mailman/*
Also, if your Mailman user:group is list:list, that is what you should
set the user:group of /var/lib/mailman/data/aliases* to.
See the section just below the warning box at
<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node10.html> for some information
on icons, although the default setting IMAGE_LOGOS = '/icons/' seems to
be correct for many apache installations.
