I was hoping to be polite and avoid the "why is Mailman inflicting  
this antiquated utility on me?" implication.  ;)

You have explained why I've no other such errors - there are no other  
crons on any of my servers.  All my customizations are done via launchd.

I'd be very grateful if you'd like to share your launchd.plist  
efforts.  Replacing Mailman's crons went on my list as soon as I  
understood what was happening.  It'd be a pleasure to eliminate the  
crons, since they strike me as inelegant by comparison.
