The patch command didn't actually create the rejects file because of
the --dry-run option.

Just to be sure we're on the same page, if the base listname is 13
characters long, say abcdefghijklm, then abcdefghijklm-request (and
maybe abcdefghijklm-unsubscribe) is OK, but if it is 14 characters
long, say abcdefghijklmn, then you want abcdefghijklmnrej. That's what
the 13 in the patch means.

I don't know why the patch is failing. What Mailman version is this?
Can you send me (off list) a copy of MailList.py?
