Good Evening,

	I just finished (well, I guess *almost finished*) a mailman build 
(2.1.12), and all seems well - except for a cron output which is being 
seen as a mailman moderation request.  The crucial message at the end of 
the traceback is:

IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/home/mailman/lists/spam-l/config.pck'

which makes no sense, as the list is in use with subscribers, and seems 
fine except for this.

My only additional data would be that this was a *very* difficult build 
this time (I dont know why, it just was); and that the domain in use were 
different from the machine's original domain (ie I had to force a mailman 
onto a place it didnt belong.  A temporary fix to an emergency (and I had 
no extra hardware at the colo).

Thoughts appreciated.
