Actually, that's not the correct number of reminders. If you are
subscribed with the same address, and the lists are in the same
domain, you should get one reminder that includes all four passwords.

I don't know why you get 4 reminders for list A if they are all for the
identical address. cron/mailpasswds may be running more than once for
some reason.

You may not be getting reminders for the other lists because you have
opted out of reminders for those lists or because the list's
send_reminders is set to No.
