Your patron requested unsubscribe and answered the confirmation on Mar 1
and was then removed from the list. Subsequently on May 6 the patron
replied again to the original May 1 confirmation email which was still
in his/her mailbox. This time the confirmation token had expired and
that was reported back to the patron.

Mailman didn't queue or resend anything.

Also, I'm sure it's not relevant to this issue, but your post to
mailman-users was stuck in a gmail server for over 4 days.
