This one stung me, too.  Is the sendmail aliases syntax different from
the Exim syntax here?  Exim interprets the alias

test: |"/var/lib/mailman/scripts/post test"

as "when mail resolved via the alias key "test" arrives, try piping it
to the space-containing command name '/var/lib/mailman/scripts/post test'
with no arguments"

If both sendmail and Exim are happy with the following syntax:

test: |/var/lib/mailman/scripts/post test

, I propose changing the current "newlist" output.
