The configuration page talks about "topic categories", and presents
three options. But it doesn't actually say that *any* messages have the
appropriate topic categories applied...

As far as I can tell, no messages are actually categorised in a way that
the list manager understands.

Has anyone played with the setting underneath, "Do you want to receive
messages that do not match any topic filter?" It's set to "No" by
default. If you check that, and start getting e-mail, then my guess is
right.
