Does this apply to a subscribe command in mail to listname-request or
to mail to listname-join or listname-subscribe or all of these? If it
applies to a subscribe command does it apply whether or not the
subscribe command specifies an address?

The e-mail that reports "You are already subscribed!" contains a copy
of the subscribe request as received. Are the From: and Return-Path:
headers as expected in that message and not those of a subscriber?

We probably won't know the answer to that until we know why it happens.
