Nope, the test situation is on a single server running sendmail 8.9.0
as a "hub". It services all the domains in the test message.
In the real world, the same situation has occurred because of bounced
messages sent to the mail server from outside the domain. The problem
is the behavior of the Reply-To: header. Majordomo should screen the
source and destination addresses and detect/kill the loop before
sending the message if we must use the current Reply-To: convention.
