The only ones I see are ones like these ...

Nov 12 23:16:51 mail sendmail[6446]: XAA06421: forward 
/home/lacailladec/.forward: Group writable directory

And they don't seem to apply to all the users, and not the ones I'm seeing 
this message for.

The default shell on this box is bash.

[root at mail log]# bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.01.1(1)-release (i486-pc-linux-gnu)

Many thanks.
