i tried exactly this:

bounce_score_threshold = 1.0
bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings = 0
bounce_notify_owner_on_disable = 0
bounce_notify_owner_on_removal = 0

which did not prevent mailman from sending the probes. I found no
configuration setting to prevent the bounce probe (which was introduced
to mailman in 2.1.5) but - just now - found a hint in the CHANGES file
from the 2.1.6 release:

    - VERP_PROBES is disabled by default.

which suggests the probes can be disabled in 2.1.6 which probably means
i should upgrade my mailman.

any further insight into this topic is appreciated.
