That was a typo on my part.  The field is "Submitter-Id", the file is
"submitters".  If 'rphaddox' is not a legal entry in submitters, you
cannot use it in your "Submitter-Id" field.  Edit your "SUBMITTER="
environment variable to say "unknown" or add 'rphaddox' to your
submitters file.

Is send-pr using a mailer or pr-edit?  Check the "MAILPROG=" environment
variable. If this is unset, you're using pr-edit.  If it is sent, you're
sending email.  If you're sending email, make sure your aliases file is
set up correctly to receive queries through email.

Alternatively, is the category listed in the "categories" file?  How did
you go about making the category?

Have you referenced the GNU GNATS manual ala the 'info' command?
There's a lot of useful information in there...
