Sorry, I never saw that post, it's not in my mail queue. I am getting  
these error as system mailing warnings from cron:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 284, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 264, in main
  File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 199, in process_lists
    mlist = MailList.MailList(listname, lock=0)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 130, in __init__
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 629, in Load
    dict, e = self.__load(file)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 595, in __load
    fp = open(dbfile)
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/mailman/lists/ 

I get these emails ever 5 minutes.

Mail sent to the mailing list still goes out.

For now I've simply commented out the crontab line for the mailman user:

#0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /usr/local/bin/python2.4 - 
S /usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news

(which should be */5 * * * * anyway, no?)

but I don't know that that's a solution?

You too will get old. And when you do you'll fantasize that when
	you were young prices where reasonable, politicians were noble,
	and children respected their elders. Respect your elders.
