Great.  I mailed a mail of the type

From: address@hidden
To: address@hidden
Bcc: auc-tex-unsubscribe-user=host.domain

and I got back hundreds of mails of the kind

From: address@hidden
Subject: CONFIRM unsubscribe from address@hidden

Hi! This is the ezmlm program. I'm managing the
address@hidden mailing list.

I'm working for my owner, who can be reached
at address@hidden

A request has been made to remove


from the auc-tex mailing list. If you agree, please send
an empty reply to this address:


And now you are telling me, in spite of the "To:" header, that those
mails were _only_ sent to me in Bcc?

If please a few others could corroborate this in private conversation
(send mail to address@hidden), I will then send all those unsubscribe
acknowledgment mails myself.  But this is the weirdest behavior I have
ever encountered.  I already was surprised that I even got Bccs of the
mails.  That I am the only recipient, is hilarious.
