    After a bit more investigation at the MTA side, I managed to find 
out that Mailman processes the subscribe requests alone twice. 
Subscribing through the web interface makes Mailman process the request 
once.  However, sending a mail without proper commands to 
mailinglist-request at domain throws ONE error e-mail back, as it should 
be. So there's this situation:

    - Subscription through web interface: OK
    - Subscription through e-mail: 2 subscriptions processed
    - Other mail to mailinglist-request at domain: OK

    Where do you suggest I start looking now?
