I just set up my majordomo a couple of weeks ago and when I came up with
that problem, that is what someone told me to do and it worked just fine.
Except that I forgot to mention that He also told me to go into my sendmail
and set up majordomo as a Trusted User.  Other then that, everything EXCEPT
wrapper is majordom:daemon on my system and that was set up by the install.
It set wrapper up as owned by root because I am on a SunOS system and had to
compile using the POSIX compliance options.  I am not an expert at it and I
could be wrong on my answers, but since I just installed it, I was just
giving what worked for me as an answer. :)
