I asked about this a few weeks ago but did not see any replies.  If you 
did reply, I am sorry but I didn't receive it.  

I have compiled and configured Majordomo on a Linux 1.2.13 box.  It works 
fine on my test machine.  I then compiled and configured it on my major 
mail server.  When I add the aliases for a list and run newaliases, there 
is an IMMEDIATE increase in the number of processes running.  I'm talking 
where the load average goes from 2.xx to 15.xx!  If I remove the aliases 
it goes back to normal immediately.  From watching it, it appears that 
majordomo is being called for *every* incoming piece of mail.  

Any pointers or ideas on where to look would be much appreciated.
