Yep, this caught me a little off guard too.  Seems Mailman will send the
password reminder out even if the user was disabled earlier (nomail).

It's not just me, eh?  I also noticed the "List-ID:" header also showed
the description of one of my test lists too--freaky.  That was a bit
confusing on those bouces, but looks like everything else was OK.

I'm running Mailman v1.1 on RHLinux 6.2, sendmail 8.10.1.
