I tested it on Linux 1.0.9 with Perl 5.000 and all run fine (except the
places where '@' is used in a string). I simply grepped all sources
and got no problems. This installation was for tests only, the real thing
runs under Perl 4.036 on another Linux machine. I tested subscribe,
unsubscribe, archiving, request-address and mails to the list. May be there
are some problems in other commands.
