[Mailman-Users] List admins unable to approve?

Running a dozen or so lightly populated lists on the following setup

Mailman 2.1.2 (source package, upgrad from 2.0.8)
Apache 1.3.26
Solaris 8

Since the upgrade (following the upgrade readme in the mailman source),
list admins receive the authorisation request email for non-list members
to post, however, when they reply (correctly, I may add; Approved:
PASSWORD etc.) to the message in order to approve it, nothing happens...
the message is not released to the list.

Furthermore, these 'held' messages do not show up using the web admin
interface and it just gives the same "There are no pending requests"

However, in /home/mailman/data I see entries similar to:

-rw-rw-r--   1 mailman  mailman      2461 Nov 12 10:08

(The contents of this matches up with a post that was held for list
admin approval this morning.. again nothing happened when the message
was replied to and it was not seen in the web interface)

Apart from that, everything else works fine, posting, subscription,
archive browsing etc.

Any ideas?
