Alls well that ends ...

I cured the problem, finally, by deleting all the aliases in my virtual domain setup, which
I had created following one of the explanations in the README.POSTFIX file. Of course I was
then running Mailman 2.0.13.

If anyone has a better checklist of things to do to setup "postfix virtual domains", please
post here and possibly send it to roadstar at verbose.twistedhistory.com - the address I'll be
checking for the next week while I'm out of town.
