Alas, the real explanation was much more mundane and kind of dumb.
Back in February, my employer changed the format for eddresses (so
that mine, for example, went from "ddanehy@siebel.com" to
"Dan'l.Danehy-Oakes@Siebel.com"). Mail to the old eddress continued to
be delivered, so I could read Urth; but mail from the new eddress was
rejected as not coming from a listmember. The obvious solution --
unsubscribe and resubscribe -- wasn't possible because I couldn't send
an email from the old eddress to unsubscribe. I could have just resubbed
from the new eddress, or this one, but I didn't want to deal with two
copies of each message.

Well, Ranjit's fixed it and I'm a happy bug.
