Summary: add_members does not send welcome message

Initial Comment:
I use mailman with a CGI script wrapper to add subscribers via add_members. Subscribing succeeds but unfortunately it does not send out the welcome message nor the moderator information. Of course I have said so with the command all possible options, but nothing helps. Even from the console the messages will not be send.
remove_members has the same problem.

mailman: 2.1.9-8
system: Debian GNU/Linux testing (lenny)

Finally it was issued by an permission problem. "check_perms" showed somes
problems.

There was a bug in that if the list was set to not send welcome messages,
this could not be overridden in add_members or mass subscribe, but this was
fixed in 2.1.9.

I don't see this problem running add_mambers from the command line. I set
the list's send_welcome_message and admin_notify_mchanges off and run
'bin/add_members -r file -w y -a y listname' and the member in 'file'
received the welcome and the admin received the subscribe notice.
