Very strange. I would expect any group mismatch error reported in
/var/log/maillog to be a mail wrapper error associated with mail
delivery to Mailman, not a cgi-wrapper error.

I'm only guessing because I know nothing of openbsd's httpd server or
slowcgi, but his looks like something is misconfigured and a visit to,
e.g., http://example.com/mailman/xxx/... is trying to execute 'mailman'
as a CGI instead of 'mailman/cgi-bin/xxx'.
