[Mailman-Developers] Can't get VERP to do much

Ok, so I got VERP enabled, the envelope now looks good on outbound messages,
and exim accepts messages back.

I tried sending messages like this:
echo -e "From: marc@merlins.org\nTo:test\n\ntest" | exim test-bounces+merlin=gandalf.merlins.org@gandalf-lists.merlins.org

and they apparently didn't get picked up by bounce mechanism, but got sent
to the list owner

Then I tried to Email a list with a bouncing address, and triggered this;

Feb 25 00:48:38 2002 (21519) Uncaught runner exception: no such group
