Nice hack...  Almost makes me sorry I don't do digests, so I can't
use it myself.

Similarly easy fix:  Turn off "Must posts have list named in
destination (to, cc) field (or be among the acceptable alias names,
specified below)?"

The header.

Have you been trying your address as an alias or the address of the
original mailing list that the message is coming from?  From your
examples, I'd guess you're using the original list's address, but I
would expect that you need to use your own.  Either way, if you've
only tried one, see if the other works.  (And if that doesn't do it,
cut'n'paste the text from the held message's To: header into the list
of acceptable aliases.)
