If I understand correctly, the problem is with the 'list at test.com' list
and the 'test at test.com' list works as expected.

Also, if I understand, you have a process external to Mailman the sees
a post to 'test at test.com' with 'hello' in the subject and forwards it
to 'list at test.com', and these posts were being held for "implicit
destination" by the 'list at test.com' list. You then set
require_explicit_destination to NO on 'list at test.com' which is one way
to avoid the "implicit destination" hold, and now the posts forwarded
to 'list at test.com' just "disappear".

Do they appear in the archives of 'list at test.com'?

Does 'list at test.com' have any eligible recipients (non-digest members
with delivery enabled and in some cases not an explicit addressee and
not the poster).

What's in Mailman's vette log.

See items 7, 8 and 9 in the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/A4E9> for
other possibilities.
