[Mailman-Users] Incorrect email address - a bug?

Just trying a number of things I don't usually play with as a list
server admin.  This one is odd.

Going to the member options page from the general info page (not logged
in as an admin), I enter my email address on the latter and get the
login page for user list management.  The page shows, quite correctly,
"<listname> list: member options for user fmouse at fmp.com".  When I
request a Password reminder it doesn't arrive.  The mail server log
shows that Mailman is trying to send to "fmouse-owner at fmp.com" - no such
user!!  A bug?  This address is also reflected in the VERP sender
address.  fmouse at fmp.com isn't an owner of the list, just a subscriber.
I _can_ log in as an administrator using my skeleton key pw, but when
this happens, I'm not logged in as one (if I am, of course, I go
straight to the member options page w.o. being asked to authenticate).
