[Mailman-Users] mailman problem with local sender

Hi.  Someone posted a while back (In feb..) about a problem whereby if
the sender of a mail is on the list that he sends to, the python process
never closes.

This is causing me huge problems, with 50 or so processes hanging and
not closing.  It seems to happen when others send to the list, so I'm
guessing that it's confused by the fact it has to deliver locally, rather
than anything else.

I tested this under exim and qmail, with the same problem.  Has anything
been checked into CVS or anything that fixes this?

57768  ??  I      0:00.21 /usr/local/bin/python -S /usr/local/mailman/scripts/p
57769  ??  Z      0:00.00  (sh)
57845  ??  I      0:00.01 bin/qmail-local -- alias /var/qmail/alias chat - chat
57847  ??  I      0:00.00 /bin/sh -c /usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper post chat
57848  ??  I      0:00.21 /usr/local/bin/python -S /usr/local/mailman/scripts/p

You can see the kind of havoc this causes.  :/  This is a FreeBSD-CURRENT
machine for the record, now running qmail.
