[Mailman-Users] Reject reason not given in rejection message

Interestingly, the vette log has nothing in it for those rejects.
Perhaps that is a clue to the problem. It appears to be none of the
above. I have not implemented SSL yet so that is out. It must be saving
my changes because when I revisit the admin page, the radio button is
correct and no redirects are involved. Admittedly the only suspect is
the ineffective mm_cfg.py variables. As you might recall that was an
issue earlier but using the config script solved the problem so I
haven't worried about it since. Here is my refuse.txt which looks correct:

Your request to the %(listname)s mailing list


has been rejected by the list moderator.  The moderator gave the
following reason for rejecting your request:


Any questions or comments should be directed to the list administrator


I don't have any idea where to start on this. Can I somehow trace this
if I have the offending message resent?
