Ah... thanks very much for the clue. Yep, disabling the footer fixes the 
issue (although we're then left without a footer). Interesting FAQ. 
Somehow, this was not happening when the lists were running through 
CommuniGate Pro;  I'm not sure how that MTA solves the problem. But at 
least this is a possible solution for Mailman, so  thanks.

No, we're not using Content Filtering for these lists.
