More specifically, I am replying to the confirmation message ( to catjuggling-request at cibolo.us)  after inviting a user to the list.
It seems to not work -- no hint of it in the logs.

I can send a message to a different related address, and see in the logs -- ( to catjuggling at cibolo.us)
(delivered to command: /var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post catjuggling)
I can use the link to start a subscription via the web interface.

/etc/aliases has these lines:

# STANZA START: catjuggling
# CREATED: Thu May 19 23:07:53 2016

catjuggling-unsubscribe: "|/var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe catjuggling"
# STANZA END: catjuggling

/etc/aliases has been updated with
sudo newaliases

Any ideas what would cause catjuggling-request: to fail where
catjuggling: "|/var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post catjuggling"
