Hi Dan.

Yes on pending entries.
Yes the dumpdb shows the pending subs.
I've tried both ways of replying to the confirmation message (body or
subject) to no avail. Admin gets the confirmation request replies, and
that's the last, subscriber never gets a 'you have been subscribed'
Yes, the confirmation reply is going to <list>-request.
There are no pending admin requests or any indications on the web page.
The only thing amiss (I just noticed) is that the /pipermail/ alias
hasn't been created in apache.
