So I'm having some trouble figuring out whether things are working
correctly. In particular, I seem to have users who are undeliverable
for weeks and yet don't seem to be being unsubed even though the
settings should be doing that.

Is there a good way to examine the database of bounce information
being stored so that I can tell what Mailman things the state for
such users is?
