Yea, maybe it's fixed on FC8.. but it's broke for FC7. I'll see if I can get
smrsh (which is what calls mailman's wrapper anyway in /etc/smrsh) to run
as a different user without a recompile. I see it as: Sendmail's been put
together kind of funny and the sendmail-devel package yields nothing useful..
worst come to worst, I'll just recompile sendmail and cross my fingers.
I recently switched my web/email server from AIX to Linux... in the past I
just compiled everything as I needed it since I liked setting all my options
Otherwise, I just wanted to let the potential developer folks out there
something seems amiss. I'd be happy to offer someone to ssh to the box if they
wanna see for themselves...
