Hii Guys

I get the following error while running bin/genaliases

anirudh at ani-lap:/usr/local/mailman/bin$ ./genaliases
postalias: fatal: bad string length 0 < 1: setgid_group =
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./genaliases", line 116, in <module>
  File "./genaliases", line 102, in main
    MTA.create(None, nolock=True, quiet=quiet)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MTA/Postfix.py", line 232, in create
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MTA/Postfix.py", line 53, in _update_maps
    raise RuntimeError, msg % (acmd, status, errstr)
RuntimeError: command failed: /usr/sbin/postalias
/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases (status: 1, Operation not permitted)

running the script  as 'sudo' also gives the same error

Mailman version : 2.1.12
Mail server: Postfix
OS- Debian Lenny
