I doubt that this is majordomo because it hands off the list delivery
to sendmail for processing. I have seen many instances where sendmail
would exhibit behaviour like this. There was a problem at uunet
several years ago where their volume caused sendmail to barf regularly
and on restart would generate hundreds of duplicates to large mailing
lists (this was when I originally put in the message-id checking on
all our local lists to trap duplicates).

Government spending? I don't know what it's all about. I don't know
any more about this thing than an economist does, and, God knows, he
doesn't know much.
