Mailman permission errors

During a fresh install of mailman on Debian squeeze, there are some unresolved errors from check_perms which -f doesnt solve:

root@mail:# check_perms -f

/var/lib/mailman/icons bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 /var/lib/mailman/bin bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 /var/lib/mailman/scripts bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 /var/lib/mailman/logs bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 /var/lib/mailman/locks bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 /var/lib/mailman/cron bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 /var/lib/mailman/templates bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 /var/lib/mailman/cgi-bin bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 /var/lib/mailman/mail bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 /var/lib/mailman/Mailman bad group (has: root, expected list) (fixing)
 Problems found: 10

Re-run as list (or root) with -f flag to fix

Reruning the command gives same output and doesnt solve the problem. The problem is that these files are symlinks to folders, which need an extra argument to solve the problem:

root@mail:# chgrp -h list /var/lib/mailman/*

Afterwards the check_perms is run without error:

root@mail:# check_perms -f
No problems found
