[Mailman-Users] Sendmail Milter subsystem telling sendmail to discard Mailman digests

I've been banging my head against my monitor for a week now trying to 
figure out why this is happening, but I cannot.

I have this setup:
Fedora Core 2
Mailman 2.1.5
Sendmail 8.13.1
mimedefang 2.49
spamassassin 3.0.2
milter-date 0.12.160

Here's what's going on:

Email to the list comes in. 
Whether or not the email needs to be moderated, the email to non-digest 
users goes out without a problem. 
When senddigests is run, the following occurs in /var/log/maillog:

Feb  1 15:58:24 hoover sendmail[2624]: j11KwM56002624: 
from=<testlist-bounces at xxx.org>, size=1853, class=-30, nrcpts=1, 
msgid=<200502012058.j11KwM56002624 at xxx.org>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, 
relay=mailman at localhost.localdomain []
Feb  1 15:58:25 hoover mimedefang.pl[2526]: 
MDLOG,j11KwM56002624,mail_in,,,<testlist-bounces at xxx.org>,<user1 at xyz.com>,Testlist 
Digest, Vol 1, Issue 2
Feb  1 15:58:25 hoover sendmail[2624]: j11KwM56002624: Milter add: 
header: X-Scanned-By: MIMEDefang 2.49 on
Feb  1 15:58:25 hoover sendmail[2624]: j11KwM56002624: Milter: data, discard
Feb  1 15:58:25 hoover sendmail[2624]: j11KwM56002624: discarded

This happens even if I disable all of mimedefang's abilities to discard 

What I can't understand is why it would discard the digest but not the 
non-digest messages!

Has anyone seen this peculiarity before?
