I don't know what would cause that.  If you forwarded one of the problem
messages in its entirety (with permission of the subscriber, I'd hope),
someone might see the trouble.

No, just the contrary.  What I meant was just that if, for instance, I
have several e-mail addresses, Mailman won't "know" that they belong to
Trevor Johnson.  It only keeps track of e-mail addresses, not people.
