This is your problem.  Do NOT add per-list aliases to the aliases file
when using Exim with Mailman.  That stuff is only necessary for
Sendmail.  The only aliases you need to define for Mailman-over-Exim are
mailman and mailman-owner.  (I don't think mailman-request or
mailman-admin can hurt, though.)
