Looks like a bug still in beta4

This one appears to have been fixed in beta4 but I can still reproduce
the above bug:

o Create a list with myself and an alias that the local smtp server
gives a "451" response to.
o Send a message to the list
o I get a copy of the message once a minute (there are 2 pairs of
.db/.msg files in the qfiles directory at this point)

Once I delete the aliase that gives "451" or allow it to be delivered
the repeated messages stop and the qfiles files are deleted.

Regards, Matthew
