My users are getting list posts more than once (twice, three times, sometimes
four or five copies of the same messages).  

Never ran into a multiple-subscribe-ack problem (I added all my users 
manually, from another list software), but I also found that if I tried
to add more than 25 users at a time or so I'd get error occurances with
messages on the web page like "Operation would block", etc.  That, however,
may be a DEC UNIX limit problem and not a MailMan problem.

DU 4.0D / Sendmail 8.9.1 / Python 1.5.1 / MailMan 1.0b5, compiled with 
GCC (egcs 1.0.3a).

Currently, until I can get the multiple-posts problem fixed (I myself was
getting the posts twice) I've got all my users back on Procmail/Smartlist.
