I used the Mailman backport and now get the slightly less cryptic:
Apr 21 16:35:45 2004 (2892) delivery to email@example.com
code -1: icheep in local_domains? yes (matched reepicheep)
It appears Mailman is trying to use a partial part (icheep) of the host name
(reepicheep) in its delivery attempts.
Any ideas why or how to fix?
