so it sounds like you have postfix aliases set up for "pctest-*", but
not "pctest" itself? is that right?

i don't use mysql, but my epiphany was when i realized i needed
two separate mappings to be in place to get postfix and mailman
working together. you need the virtual domain map (which i believe
you have) and you need the map that takes the result of the virtual
domain map, and turns it into a "real" destination.
