[Mailman-Users] Re: Duplicate Messages Sent

I had complaints about something similar this month during the monthly
mailing of the "password reminder" messages.  A few users contacted me
saying that they'd received more than one reminder, and since the
reminders are rather annoying anyway, they were doubly annoyed.

I'm not a "Python-head", so I really don't have much of a clue as to
what investigation would need to be done to hunt this one down.

I'm running an older version of Mailman which so far has not caused me
any other problems at all on a Debian system.  At least that I know
about, anyway...!
