I continue to get these messages when some cron jobs are running.  I can see
that it is a permissions problems.  But I have tried everything by changing
permissions and it still is having problems.  This particular file that is
mentioned is not there.  Someone please help me figure this out.  There has
to be some little thing I am missing.  I have compared files with others
that are not getting the message and the permissions are the same.  

Your "cron" job on lists
/usr/local/bin/python -S /usr/local/mailman/cron/nightly_gzip

produced the following output:
