Well, here's more information on my setup...

Here's a snippet from my aliases file:

#mailman aliases
mailman:        jeffr
mailman-owner:  mailman

## odeon_test mailing list
## created: 23-Mar-2001 mailman
odeon_test:              "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post odeon_test"
odeon_test-admin:        "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner
odeon_test-request:      "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd odeon_test"
odeon_test-owner:        odeon_test-admin

and here's a snippet from my main.cf file:

alias_maps = dbm:/etc/aliases

newaliases has been run, but the problem persists.
