Subject: sendmail won't call wrapper

I am running redhat 6.2 linux. I have installed the 1.94.4-8 version rpm
of majordomo. I have set up the following aliases for the list "foo"

majordomo:              "| /usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"
mj:                     majordomo
owner-majordomo:        majordomo-owner
majordomo-owner:        me
bounces-owner:          majordomo-owner
bounces-approval:       majordomo-owner

foo:		    "| /usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper resend -l foo foo-list"
foo-list:           :include:/var/lib/majordomo/lists/foo
owner-foo:          me
foo-owner:          me
foo-request:        "| /usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper majordomo -l foo"

I ran ./wrapper config-test with no problems reported.

When I send a test message (say "help") to majordomo on my machine, I get the 
following email in respones:

The original message was received at Tue, 5 Jun 2001 15:09:57 -0700
from jim@localhost

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"| /usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"
    (expanded from: majordomo)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
sh: wrapper not available for sendmail programs
554 "| /usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"... Service unavailable

Obviously, sendmail does not seem to think it has permission to run wrapper,
but it should:

> ls -l /usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper
-rwsr-xr-x    1 root     majordom     5304 Sep  3  1999 /usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper

Does anyone have any idea what is going on?
