Wow, that's weird.  It _looks_ like a shell is getting invoked and it's
running startup files which try to do things like stty.  That shouldn't be
happening.

There isn't enough info to tell where this shell is getting invoked; either
it's by sendmail when it does the pipe to the wrapper, or somehow by perl
when it does a glob expansion.  Very strange.

As a shot in the dark, does your majordomo user have .cshrc, .login,
..profile, or any other shell startup files in its home directory?  If so,
move them somewhere else and see if it stops.
