[Mailman-Users] Seems like a bug with Mailman 2.0

Running Mailman 2.0 on a unix box with Python 2.0, I have been 
experiencing problems when users have vacation messages 
replying to my postings.

In one case a user received 300 messages because Mailman 
seemed to incorrectly interpret the vacation message. A snippet is 
posted below:

This message seemed to get stuck in a loop and at least 300 
copies of this message were delivered to the user when he returned 
after vacation.

Is this a sendmail issue? Seem like a Mailman error. Any
