Turns out that all the lists that are NOT authenticating are all
the lists that existed prior to my Python 2.1/2.0.4 upgrade; the
list that i added two days ago lets me in.... 

Did crypt() or something change in Python 2.1?  I'd been running
2.0 / MailMan 2.0.3 before.  Most of these lists have existed 
since the pre-Mailman 2.0 days..
