I just had a similar problem - posts to my list I found went to a file that was called "wrapper resend -l jokes joke-list" - the exact string that was supposed to get passed to wrapper.  I'm not sure HOW it happened, but I ended up reinstalling, and changing permissions on wrapper per a message I just saw on the list here.

I noticed in the error messages that my wrapper was set to user id 99, group 99, which is NOT what I set it to.  So, I chowned all the files (except wrapper) to user 99 and group 99 (which happens to be "nobody", and it seems to work ok now.  Here's a copy of my majordomo directory:

drwxrwxr-x    6 nobody   nobody       4096 Aug 25 16:37 ./
