Ok, I tried this, but it did the same thing... however, I tried
something else - adding the full path to the command - and it now works:

su - mailman -c '/usr/lib64/mailman/bin/mailmanctl -s start' >/dev/null 2>&1

I'm assuming this is a gentoo issue, but if anyone here runs gentoo and
might know whats up with this I'd appreciate a comment.

Thanks Mark! At least it works now. :)


Best regards,
