What is the setting for "Action when critical or excessive bounces
are detected" for those lists?  When you ask "Does this feature work
consistently?" are you saying that it is set to "Disable and notify
me" and that sometimes the notice does not go out?  If it is set to
"Disable and DON'T notify me" -for those lists- then you have your
answer.  If it -is- set to send the notices, is it possible that the
notices go out but do not make it very far?  i.e., can your Mailman
and/or MTA logs shed any light on whether or not the notices actually
are sent but perhaps are not able to be delivered?
