Thanks very much for the reply. The Runner programs did have mailman as
their user and group. Following the clue given by the quote in your
signature, what I "gathered from coincidence" was that the system had
SELinux set to enforcing, but that there was no SELinux rule to allow the
mailman scripts to be run from httpd process.
Archiving is now working happily. Thanks again!
