As you can see, you have "test-request" defined twice.  I don't know 
about Sendmail specifically, but some other MTAs use the first 
definition of an alias that they encounter.  Take out the
"test-request: mailman"
line and that will probably solve your problem.

Since the general civilizations of mankind, I believe there are more
instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual
and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden
