That I'm aware of.  I subscribed myself via my personal email to avoid any
confusion with me as a list admin.  My request did not appear as a pending
subscription request until after I clicked the link on the confirmation
email.  At that point an email notifying me of a pending request should have
been sent to my list admin email address.  No such message was sent, and
that's the problem.
