Public bug reported:

We're running Mailman 2.1.14 and have recently begun using mm-
handler-2.1.10 from the contrib directory as MTA for sendmail.
Everything appeared to work fine, but after a few months we were alerted
by one of our users that no mail was delivered anymore to one of his
lists. The list's name is mathematica-admin. It turns out that mm-
handler strips the -admin part and tries to deliver the mail to a list
named mathematica, which does not exist. We had a small number of other
lists with the same problem. I've created a patch that fixes it and
another small issue (a variable is passed to a subroutine, but a global
variable is actually used there).
