I guess there were two subscribers having this problem and you got

I hope I'm remembering right that the problem is caused by Perl 5's
interpolation of meta-characters in the regex. Lines 884 and 894 (in
1.93) in file majordomo need the following changes:

   884                        $command = "(qq~$reply_addr~ =~ $i)";
   884                        $command = "(q~$reply_addr~ =~ $i)";

   894                        $command = "(qq~$reply_addr~ =~ $i)";
   894                        $command = "(q~$reply_addr~ =~ $i)";

I.e. change 'qq' to just 'q' so that $reply_addr isn't interpolated.
