just a thought:
The trick is also to make sure EVERY directory in the path is set with the
correct permissions (i.e., NOT group writable). For example, if your dir
path is /home/majordomo/lists, you need to chmod 755 /home, /home/majordomo,
AND /home/majordomo/lists. It won't do any good just to chmod 755
/home/majordomo/lists if /home, for example, is group- (and world-)
That one bit me on the ass only just recently ...
