File defining "listproc" has too wide priviledges for the
taste of the router -- or its directory has..
That "65534" is "nobody" in your machine, and "nobody" can
run programs, nor write to arbitary file. (Mailbox writing
is ok, though.)
How you define it ? $MAILVAR/lists/listproc, or on
$MAILVAR/db/aliases, or something else ? Check file
protection to be 644 or more restrictive, and directory
protection to be 755 or more restrictive.
These are configurable by editing router/conf.c
variables filepriv_mask_dir, and filepriv_mask_reg
