I've built and installed Mailman 2.12 from current source code and
have it running just fine under OS X Server 10.5.7, with on exception,
which is not properly speaking a Mailman problem at all.

If I start Mailman from the CLI, using /usr/share/mailman/bin/
mailmanctl -s start, all is well.

If I allow launchd to start it

The reason this happens is that launchd expects the processes it launches to stick around. They must not daemonize. But mailmanctl terminates after it has started the runners. I assume that Apple modified their own distribution of Mailman so that mailmanctl behaves differently. I'd suggest comparing the two.
