<caerllewys at caerllewys.net>: Command died with status 2:
    "/usr/lib64/mailman/mail/mailman post caerllewys". Command output: Group
    mismatch error.  Mailman expected the mail wrapper script to be
executed as
    group "mailman", but the system's mail server executed the mail
script as
    group "nobody".  Try tweaking the mail server to run the script as group
    "mailman", or re-run configure,  providing the command line option

I'd swear I fixed that *AT LEAST* once......

The easy solution:

1.  In /etc/postfix/main.cf:
mail_owner            = postfix
default_privs         = mailman

2.  Restart Postfix
