I understand that that is the problem, but they'll never be removed
anyway because password reminders come from the site (mailman) list,
and any bounced password reminder is returned to mailman-bounces and
ignored since the user being reminded is not a member of the mailman

That being the case, my previous suggestion that you could list
delivery disabled members that have current bounce info with a
withlist or other script won't work either, because they won't have
any bounce info for a bounced password reminder.

Thus, I think I'm back to my other thought which is that in the short
term, the best you can do is arrange for mail to the mailman-bounces
address to be seen by a human.

In the longer term (Mailman 2.2) password reminders and the site list
are both going away.
