	While looking at that thread again I found this also from Dan Nelson:
The code that does the check is this:

   struct group *grp = getgrnam ("mail");
   if (!grp || (grp->gr_gid != getegid ())) die ("not setgid 
	Looking up the man pages I see that getegid gets the group id of the 
calling process.

	What is the calling process to mlock?  I tried setting ipop2d, ipop3d 
and imapd to group mail but that didn't change anything.
