It seems the problem is actually how Postfix is processing those aliases.  I 
messed around in the virtual-regexp file and was able to get it working, 
though I'm confused as to why it works, since the settings in that file don't 
seem to match settings in other files (mm_cfg.py, for example).  I'll keep 
looking to see if I can make sense of it.

I'm still having the Invalid confirmation string error when replying to 
subscription requests via e-mail, though.  Web confirmations work fine, 
however.  I'm not sure where to look for that.
