You are correct, the Vette logs show that the moderator
did approve the post -- assumingly, by the web interface,
as no log of such appears in the mail logs:

Jun 17 10:22:11 2015 (1447) Cyber post from dxxxxxx at zzzzzz.huji.ac.il held, message-id=<8580F77FFEF0F2448E3A51C4AE83807D011951BABC at Pegasus2.hustaff.huji.local>: Post by non-member to a members-only list
Jun 17 10:24:56 2015 (88042) held message approved, message-id: <8580F77FFEF0F2448E3A51C4AE83807D011951BABC at Pegasus2.hustaff.huji.local>

Using the list's archives, I tracked down the problem -- the information
the user relayed to me was incorrect.  Apparently, the user sent to the list
with the following 'From:' line:

     From: dxxxxxx at zzzzzz.huji.ac.il (Dyyyy Swww)

Sorry for bothering the list needlessly.
