Public bug reported:

If VERP_CONFIRMATIONS is No (the default), confirmation requests are
From: the list-request address with Subject: confirm <token>. A reply
generated by the user's MUA may put 'Re:' or some i18n version of that
in the Subject: of the generated reply. For this reason, in parsing the
Subject: for commands, if the first word isn't a command, we ignore it
and look at the second, but at least one MUA has been observed that
inserts 'Re:' with no whitespace, so the command word is 'Re:confirm'
which is unrecognized.
