Cron jobs are run as the user listed after the date code, correct? Thus
"lists" is the user the scripts run under - here is the mailman cron...
/etc/cron.d$ sudo cat mailman
# At 8AM every day, mail reminders to admins as to pending requests.
# They are less likely to ignore these reminders if they're mailed
# early in the morning, but of course, this is local time... ;)
0 8 * * * list [ -x /usr/lib/mailman/cron/checkdbs ] &&
# At 9AM, send notifications to disabled members that are due to be
# reminded to re-enable their accounts.
0 9 * * * list [ -x /usr/lib/mailman/cron/disabled ] &&
# Noon, mail digests for lists that do periodic as well as threshold
0 12 * * * list [ -x /usr/lib/mailman/cron/senddigests ] &&
# 5 AM on the first of each month, mail out password reminders.
0 5 1 * * list [ -x /usr/lib/mailman/cron/mailpasswds ] &&
. . .
# At 3:27am every night, regenerate the gzip'd archive file. Only
# turn this on if the internal archiver is used and
# GZIP_ARCHIVE_TXT_FILES is false in mm_cfg.py
27 3 * * * list [ -x /usr/lib/mailman/cron/nightly_gzip ] &&
# At 4:30AM daily, cull old entries from the 'bad' and 'shunt' queues.

The interface for the list works perfectly.
I have "rmlist -a" the list and rebuilt it, and mailman functions perfectly
for list mail.
I removed the sticky bit on /var/lib/mailman (and /locks) but the command
$ sudo -u list [ -x /usr/lib/mailman/cron/checkdbs ] &&
Traceback (most recent call last):

IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:
"Permission denied..." The error seems pretty straightforward, what is it
looking for, and why wouldn't check_perms catch it?
