I didn't notice this "mailman-bounces@" error.

I will look into more details.  These 2 variables are setup in an
Opensuse sysconfig file.  Maybe I did something wrong when adding a new
mailing list recently, destroying something.

I checked the date of all files under /usr/lib/mailman but except 2
(the crontab and crontab.in files which have time modifications), they
all have the same old 2016 timestamp.  They are apparently unchanged.
