Following up to my own post...

It seems that both messages that were bounced as "administration requests" 
had, in the body of the message, either the name of the list, or something
approaching the name of the list. For example, the list name is "sig-l",
so if the text of the message says "I enjoy reading SIG-L", it'll be be
bounced, as will a message containing the text, "I bought my SIG
yesterday". Turning "administrivia" OFF solved the problem.

Of course, I still have the errors with the approve script saying that the
/tmp/ files can not be created because they already exist!

Any ideas?
