Summary: Unsubscribe problems on Debian

Initial Comment:
People can not unsubscribe online. They get an email
msg saying that a sneaky attemp to subscribe them agian
took place. This was on Debian stable mailman ver
2.1.5-8. I upgraded to testing mailman ver 2.1.6 but I
still have the same problem.

This is not a patch. If anything it should be in the bug
tracker, BUT

Are you sure you don't have a locally modified version of
the unsub.txt template? I don't think the message you
describe is anywhere in standard Mailman.

If this is not caused by your own modified template, then it
is a problem with the Debian package and should be reported
to Debian, not here.

Are you sure this comes from an unsub attempt. There is an
email that begins:

"""An attempt was made to subscribe your address to the
mailing list %(listaddr)s.  You are already subscribed to
this mailing list."""

This is sent when a user who is already a list member
attempts to subscribe again. Perhaps you have modified the
listinfo.html template and not properly arranged the
<MM-*-form-start> tags so the unsubscribe button actually
submits the subscribe form.
