And what about

ls -ld /irafs0/mailman/lists
ls -ld /irafs0/mailman
ls -ld /irafs0

What are the settings in Defaults.py and (if any) in mm_cfg.py for

I'm not familiar with lustre, but I don't know of any locking issue that
could cause this. It may well be that for reasons I don't understand
lustre file systems are not compatible with Mailman. Does lustre honor
effective uid/gid and SETGID bits on executables?

What happens if you do

su -u mailman
touch /irafs0/mailman/lists/mailman/test_file
ls -l /irafs0/mailman/lists/mailman/test_file
python -c "open('/irafs0/mailman/lists/mailman/test_file')"

Does the python command issue any error?
