Ah, that seems to be it.  dumpdb, config_list, and the web u/i all
show the quoting of the backslashes, but strings on the pickle show it
as I entered it.  (Too bad such things don't "roundtrip" properly
through tools that are supposed to do that, like config_list and the
web u/i.)

So the next question is why doesn't the header_filter_rules appear to
be working? Message are getting held (which is what I'm doing for
testing purposes), but the indicated reason is non-subscriber posting
rather than the header filter. (Both conditions are true for the
majority of junk that comes through, but there are some lists where I
really do need to allow legitimate non-subscriber posts, with
moderator approvals.)

As I understand it, SpamDetect runs before Hold, and I thought that
the first exception kicked it out of the handler processing.

Is there some logging I can turn on to see more details as to what's
going on in here?
