Can somebody point me to details on the bounce message handling?  v2.0.8

Here are the things I have set

Try to figure out error messages automatically? Yes
Minimum number of days an address has been non-fatally bad before we take
action : 1
Minimum number of posts to the list since members first bounce before we
consider removing them from the list: 1
Maximum number of messages your list gets in an hour. : 1
Action when critical or excessive bounces are detected.  Disable and notify

So I added a bogus address to the list.  The list owner is getting bounce
messages from destination MTAs (yahoo and our internal mail server).
Mailman either isn't getting the info it needs or isn't reacting to what
info it is getting.
