[Mailman-Users] Umbrella list problem

I'm just commissioning Mailman 2.0beta5 and I've got a problem using 
Umbrella lists.

For experimental purposes I've created an list called umbrella whose 
members are two other Mailman lists called test1 and test2.

I've verified that in the General Administrative options for the 
umbrella list the 'Send password reminders to, eg, "-owner" address 
instead of directly to user.' option has 'yes' checked and that the 
value for 'Suffix for use when this list is an umbrella for other 
lists, according to setting of previous "umbrella_list" setting.' 
option is '-owner'

When I send mail to the umbrella list, the list managers of the 
member lists are each required to authorize the posting because the 
'Message has implicit destination'.

Anybody got an idea of what is going on here and what I've done to 
cause the problem?
