I've done something similar, but I used the Exim system filter (as 
suggested by the Exim Spec 42.9) rather than a user filter.  I presume 
your method is failing because Exim has given up its system privileges 
by the time it runs the user filter.

Where owner is uid:32043?

Another approach might be to make a separate mailman_bounce_transport 
that looked like the normal mailman_transport, but which also included 
the shadow_transport option, specifying a simple transport that did 
nothing but file the message.
