Your group memberships are irrelevant. What counts is wrapper being
installed properly (setuid root for POSIX systems) so that it can change
to the real and effective uid.gid it was configured to run as. Who
owns test-list.new? Who owns test-list? What does that high bit mean
on your system? (33204 = 100664 octal) If test-list.new is showing
up owned by any uid other than your majordom user, then wrapper is
configured/installed wrong or isn't being used (alias is wrong or system
is ignoring setuid mode (perhaps because it's on an NFS mount?)). If you
ran config-test as root or your majordom user, then it's meaningless. It
must be run as some other ordinary user.
