Did you add the address to 'posters' via the web admin interface or
some other method that actually updated the lists/<listname>/config.db

You shouldn't need to do this for list settings as they are loaded from
the config.db each time the list is accessed.

This indicates the From: or Sender: header of the post as received from
the user has an address which is (perhaps subtly) different from the
address you are subscribing.
