What Mailman version is this?

By "request appears in the log" do you mean Mailman's vette log? If
not, what log and what's the message and what's in Mailman's vette
log? What's in Mailman's error log?

Was the subscribe from the listinfo page or via email?

That depends on what the problem is. It works for me on my development
platform with subscribe via the listinfo page.
