Mailman 1.0b7 should be better at keeping such bogus addresses from
getting into the list in the first place.  I've added two new scripts
bin/list_members and bin/remove_members which can be used from the
command line to get rid of these addresses once and for all.  I don't
know how that address would suddenly show up again on your list.

Let me know if these scripts are useful.
