Your finding is supported by the headers in the four copies:

Here majordomo delivers the message to sendmail:
  Received: (from majordom@localhost)
        by earth.GAIANET.NET (8.9.3/8.9.3) id NAA24019
        for fwong-outgoing; Sun, 31 Oct 1999 13:48:32 -0800 (PST)
        (envelope-from owner-fwong@earth.GAIANET.NET)

The marked time stamp is different in the four copies.

Here is just before sendmail delivers it to majordomo:
  Received: from victor.MCESTATE.COM (vince@victor.MCESTATE.COM
        by earth.GAIANET.NET (8.9.3/8.9.3) with ESMTP id NAA24012
        for <fwong@earth.GAIANET.NET>; Sun, 31 Oct 1999 13:48:30 -0800
        (envelope-from vince@victor.MCESTATE.COM)

The marked time stamp is the same for all copies.

Is resend called four times or does resend call sendmail four times? I
don't remember if you can increase logging so that each time resend is
called there is a log entry. Otherwise you could easily add temporary
logging to some file at the start of resend.
