For what it's worth, I'm seeing the same behaviour as what you
(Daniel) are seeing, and I read the group through comp.lang.python via
NTTP, not via the mail-based python-list or Google Groups.

Apparently somebody who doesn't understand that unlike most
other public fora, comp.lang.python is "special" in that it
is mirrored to and from the mailing list, and that there is
no other more appropriate place to ask such a question (at
least until it's apparent that it is a problem with a specific
part of this system, rather than being entirely unclear just
_what_ the problem is).
