[Mailman-Users] Address matching behavior

Hi all,

I've been running a bunch of mailman lists for about two years now, and 
a couple of months ago I upgraded to version 2.1 from 2.0. Since the 
change, every message sent to any one of our members-only lists is being 
held for approval.

The problem appears to be a change in mailman's address matching 
behavior. Previously, if user at domain.tld was subscribed, email from 
user at host.domain.tld would be accepted as well. The new mailman, 
however, doesn't think user at host.domain.tld is a member, and so holds 
the message for approval.

This is a huge pain. Is there a way I can get back the old behavior? I 
searched all over google and Usenet, and it seems like no one else has 
commented on this before...
