It's not coming from Mailman.  Are your list/list-owner addresses
possibly referenced in a boot script?

I assume you're subscribed, and your traffic turned on.  Just because
you're the list owner doesn't mean you get the list traffic.

'/usr/home/crippen/' is very non-standard FSH.  Normally one would
expect '/home/crippen'.  Is this actually how things are configured?
