the patched version of middleman solved the mailman problems I reported. 
It runs fine now. Many thanks for the help of the list, especially the 
help of Mark Sapiro. My understanding of Mailman has much improved!

I wonder if there's an interest in documenting the integration of 
mailman with Sun Java System Messaging Server, as in chapter 6 of the 
Gnu Mailman installation manual 
(http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/mailman-install/index.html)? I'm 
volunteering, but on the other hand, the README file written by Eino for 
the middleman interface code describes the integration process very well.
