[Mailman-Developers] and interesting loop

I've been running mailman since v 1.1rc1 (or something similar).

Until today (v2.0.6), I had not seen the following scenario:

A messages was sent out on one of the lists. The message was a bit large
(about 300k). There are three e-mail addresses listed as admin for this
list. Now, it just happened that one of the admin e-mail addresses was out
of disk space so there was a bounce back to the -admin address, which was
going back to the same admin.... and a loop got started....

Is this the expected behavior in this scenario or perhaps is the result
of a broken/misconfigured smtp server?

The loop stopped as soon as I removed the questionable address as an
admin for that list.
