YIKES!!!  Sorry I did not catch this in the previous response.

And the content of majordomo.aliases:
majordomo:       "|/usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"
owner-majordomo: majordomo
majordomo-owner: majordomo

As eluded to previously, majordomo should /NEVER/ be the target
of an alias.  Look at the flow here;

message comes to owner-majordomo
MTA sees alias file and redirects to majordomo
majordomo alias is a pipe to wrapper with argument of majordomo

Who will ever see an error/bounce or information message that
originates from the majordomo perl scripts?  A human trying to
inform you of a majordomo configuratoin issue will never reach
you.

If the rpm added those aliases, please inform the creator of
the rpm about the problem.  The redhat rpm does not do that.

owner-majordomo and majordomo-owner should point to you @
yours,
assuming of course that you *ARE* the responsible entity.
