I don't see the confirmation string in the list's db even though I
still see the email in held moderation queue.

It's actually weird. There are 6 messages that are held in the db, but
only 2 in the moderation queue

There was no line wrapping that I could see. They forwarded the email
to me, and when I click the link, it returns the 40 character string
that isn't in the db.

Is there anything else I can check, or should I write this one off as
an anomoly?
