[Mailman-Users] False Moderator Requests?

We have just begun using mailman and are discovering it's mysteries.  Please
be patient with ignorant questions!

I have a dozen lists, none actively used yet, that are set up ready to
convert people from our old list processor.  This morning each list sent an
email from the "listhame-bounces" address to the "listname-owner" with the
following message:

>The listname at domain mailing list has -1 request(s) waiting for your
>consideration at:
>    http://domain/mailman/admindb/listname
>Please attend to this at your earliest convenience.  This notice of
>pending requests, if any, will be sent out daily.

When I go to the URL and try to resolve the waiting request I encounter the
following message:

>Database Updated...
>Administrative requests for mailing list: Listname
>This page contains a summary of the current set of administrative requests
>requiring your approval for the Listname mailing list. First, you will find the
>list of pending subscription and unsubscription requests, if any, followed by
>any postings being held for your approval.
>For each administrative request, please select the action to take, clicking on
>the Submit All Data button when finished. More detailed instructions are also
>You can also view the details of all held postings.

As far as I can see there are NO requests waiting for the moderator and
nothing to resolve.

What's going on?

Thanks in advance for the assistance.
