You are correct. I think I've discovered the problem.

The 2.1.4 version of messages/es/LC_MESSAGES/mailman.po contains:

#: Mailman/Cgi/options.py:767
msgid ""
"You are subscribed to this list with the case-preserved address\n"
msgstr ""
"Está suscrito a la lista con la dirección <em>%s</em> respetando
mayúsculas "
"y minúsculas."

This is wrong. It was fixed in 2.1.5. The last 2 lines should be

"Está suscrito a la lista con la dirección <em>%(cpuser)s</em>
respetando "
"mayúsculas y minúsculas."

The crucial difference is %(cpuser)s, not %s

After fixing the file, you need to update the .mo file with

bin/msgfmt.py messages/es/LC_MESSAGES/mailman.po

BTW, I think you'll find that your test list has the same problem if
you visit the options page as a subscriber.
