Very odd, the path was there, the executable was there, permissions  
where right, and python appeared to be running. I certainly didn't do  
anything to change python's settings either before or after.

My confusion about the error is that mailman has ALWAYS been setu for  
uid/gid mailman, and has been for years and years.

That file has the right info, it's just the ports DB that is off since  
I replaced the install from backups 'behind its back'.
