[Mailman-Users] Looping digest - help!

Last Monday, one of our mailing lists went mad and sent multiple copies
of the same digest to the list's digest users. It happened after (my)
working hours and by the time I had a chance to react, all digest users
(but one!) received 395 copies of the same digest. What is worse, this
is the second time it happens and we start loosing subscribers...
We run several Mailman mailing lists on tug.org, but none of the other
lists had a similar problem. The comparison of the digest options showed
that only this particular list had 'Should a digest be dispatched daily...'
set to 'No'.
The traceback in the errors log shows:
Jun 19 00:01:01 2001 (18618) Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/local/mailman203/Mailman/Handlers/HandlerAPI.py", line 82, in do_pipeline
func(mlist, msg, msgdata)
File "/usr/local/mailman203/Mailman/Handlers/Sendmail.py", line 86, in process
IOError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe
I don't know what to do to prevent it from happening again... For now,
I set this digest option to 'Yes', hoping it'll help.
We run Mailman 2.0.3 with Postfix. I addressed this problem earlier
(March 26th), but there was no reply.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
