Majordomo: 1.94.1, Perl 5.003

We run a number of digested mailing lists here at Hyperreal, and last
night one went out to the "vjmc-digest" list with a problem, a problem
which caused a bounce from a majority of the sites contacted.  The problem
was that the headers looked like

  From vjmc-digest-owner Fri Jan 11th.....
  From: vjmc-digest-owner
  To: vjmc-digest
  Sender: vjmc-digest-owner

and the failure happened during the SMTP conversation

  550 MAIL FROM: vjmc-digest-owner

to which most machines responded with "user unknown".

This was the first post to this list since the 1.94.1 upgrade, but other
digest lists haven't had this problem since the upgrade.  The "sender"
variable in the config file is "vjmc-digest-owner" - I've changed that to
"vjmc-digest-owner@hyperreal.com" for the time being, but that doesn't
feel like the right solution.  

Does this trigger any ideas, is it a known bug?  Any idea what could cause
this problem for this list and not for other digest-based lists?

	Brian
