Interesting.  I've periodically had the opposite problem.  Stuff will hit
the admindb but not show up in the web interface.

For example, someone will subscribe via the web to a mailing list that
requires admin approval.  The info will make it to the admindb (pending.pck)
and be reflected in the subscribe log, but it will never show up in the
admin web interface.

Having seen it yet after the 2.1.2 upgrade, but then it's the kind of
problem you can easily miss.
