I am running 2.1.14, and we had a problem where a list owner
subscribed a number of persons to a list, and many of these
persons want to be unsubscribed.  To catch mail directed
toward the list:

      Subject: Please remove me from your list

I added a line to bounce_matching_headers

      Subject: .remove.

(I placed it at the end of the Mailman-supplied lines),
and the next mail with that subject line was sent to the
list moderators.  Another mail message arrived:

      Subject: Again... Please remove me from this list

but this one was not diverted to the moderators.  What is
wrong with my bounce_matching_headers line?  Thanks.
