I am running 1.93 on a Sun SunOS 5.4       Generic November 1994.
Perl 5.000.

My problem is that I get protection violations unless I make the list 
file world readable. Here is an example when it isn't:
   ----- The following addresses had delivery problems -----
testlist-outgoing  (unrecoverable error)
:include:/usr/local/majordomo/lists/testlist  (unrecoverable error)
    (expanded from: testlist-outgoing)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
550 :include:/usr/local/majordomo/lists/testlist... Cannot open
/usr/local/majordomo/lists/testlist: Permission denied
554 testlist-outgoing... aliasing/forwarding loop broken

If I chmod o+r, it works just fine.

We made the mistake of installing md under the username 'listmast' 
instead of majordom, but the Makefile has been edited to put the 
appropriate user and group ids:
# If you're using a POSIX-compliant system, uncomment this set of parameters
# and comment out the BSD settings above.
W_UID = 6304
W_GID = 6144
        -DHOME=\"HOME=${W_HOME}\" -DSHELL=\"SHELL=${W_SHELL}\" \

here is the passd entry:
listmast:x:6304:6144:mailing list administrator:/usr/local/majordomo:/bin/csh
here is the ls on the teslist file:
-rw-rw----   1 listmast cc_acad       155 Apr 20 10:02 testlist
and where it is:

Any suggestions?
