That's because we switched servers and didn't preserve any user 
preferences.  The 'new' password was auto-picked randomly when you 
were re-subscribed.

Never use a password you care about for list stuff.  The mailman 
interface SPECIFICALLY warns you of this IN BOLD:

"You may enter a privacy password below. This provides only mild 
security, but should prevent others from messing with your 
subscription. [BOLD]Do not use a valuable password[/BOLD] as it will 
occasionally be emailed back to you in cleartext."

safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Ben Franklin
