Okay, I reported this once, but had no proof ... now I have proof.  My
mailing lists are randomly losing bits and pieces of their configurations:

%!g
grep X-Mail pgsql-*/*config*
pgsql-committers/_config:      'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-core/_config:            'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-general/_config:         'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-hackers/_config:         'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-interfaces/_config:      'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-novice/_config:          'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-patches/_config:         'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-ports/_config:           'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-sql/_config:             'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
%id
uid=93(majordom) gid=1(daemon) groups=1(daemon)
%!gr
grep X-Mail pgsql-*/*config*
pgsql-admin/_config:           'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-committers/_config:      'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-core/_config:            'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-general/_config:         'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-interfaces/_config:      'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-novice/_config:          'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-patches/_config:         'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-ports/_config:           'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'
pgsql-sql/_config:             'X-Mailing-List: $LIST@postgresql.org'

If you notice, the top list has 'pgsql-hackers' in it, the bottom list has
it missing ... in fact, its complete _config file has been reduced to:

%cat !$/_config
cat pgsql-hackers//_config
$VAR1 = {
          'raw' => {
                     'sequence_number' => 5
                   },
          'parsed' => {}
        };

My procmailrc rules are based on the 'X-Mailing-List' header, so as soon
as my filter breaks, I know that the _config file has once more been reset
:(
