[Mailman-Users] You gave the wrong password - how to solve this?

I run various Mailman mailing lists on my servers since - well - decades
;-). Subscribers usually won't see the original Mailman interface web
pages, but I have prepared own pages accordingly. Users can subscribe
and unsubscribe from these forms.
I handle the subscribe and unsubscribe commands of-the-web page in a PHP
server-script which then sends emails to the relevant mailing lists.
This works fine with subscriptions.
But when a user wants to unsubscribe, chances are that I receive a
message from the list with the "You gave the wrong password" result.
When my script sends an unsubscribe email to the relevant list, it has
this general format:
----- snip -----
To: <mailinglist>-request at lists.<mydomain>.net
Ref: unsubscribe <myadminpassword> address=<user-email-address>
----- snap -----
What am I doing wrong? Is it possible that there is a conflict between
the <myadminpassword> and a maybe user-defined <userpassword> when I try
to unsubscribe the user with my <myadminpassword>?
