Upon further thought I think the issue is that someone has installed a
system mailman crontab (/etc/cron.d/mailman) as the mailman user's
crontab (/var/spool/cron/mailman). System crontabs have an extra field
for the user under which to run the command (mailman) which will be
interpreted as a 'mailman' command if installed as a user crontab.
