[Mailman-Users] mischief: Login failure with private rosters

Hi all,

I keep seeing "Login failure with private rosters" errors in my mischief 
logs.  Some are accepted as being valid, but others seem to be unrelated 
to private archives and more likely to be failure to login to 
unsubscribe or change options.  I haven't directly asked any of the 
users, however I have some inside knowledge on what a few of the users 
are doing since I know their email addresses are changing.  That 
knowledge, coupled with the fact that their particular list only has 
public archives, makes me believe there may be an error in the log 
message in Mailman v2.1.7.  The mischief logs don't identify which list 
the login failure occurs with, so it is difficult to know for sure.  Has 
anyone else experienced similar?
