The only subscribe file I know about is logs/subscribe, which is just a log;
it's not processed per se.  Are you saying you see entries in there saying
"....pending"?  Is there a ~mailman/data/pending_subscriptions.db, and if
so, does bin/dumpdb show the things you expect in that file (the subscriptions
you think are pending)?  I assume the email confirmation does get sent back to the
address that's attempting to subscribe;  how are you replying to 
the confirmation?  Does the confirmation reply show up anywhere (in the
admin pages or anything)?  Is the confirmation reply going to <list>-request?
