[Mailman-Users] Emergency Moderation Problem

I've been a happy mailman user for over 10 years and haven't had to trouble this list until now. Hopefully this isn't an obvious question. I've looked through the list archive as much as I can and don't see that it's been previously discussed. 

Recently I enabled "Emergency Moderation" briefly, but when I disabled it the system doesn't return to the normal state--all traffic is still moderated even though EM is off. 

When reviewing posts that are awaiting approval, the option to clear the subscriber's moderation flag appears, but checking the box has no effect. No subscribers should be set to mod. 

Further, the system will occasionally set a subscriber's mod flag to on when a post is held, even though that box was not checked before. Clearing these flags also has no effect. 

I've tried the simple, obvious things like reenabling EM and then disabling, with no result. 

I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this problem and would appreciate and direction. 

The mailman version is 2.1.23 using the standard cPanel distribution. 

Many thanks in advance.
