Just a clarification. The shunted message in the above case is not the
'problem' message. It is the current message which triggers the
digest, and since the digest isn't produced and digest.mbox isn't
removed, each subsequent message does the same thing and is also

The original 'problem' message was possibly shunted in processing it
for the archive, but it was most likely delivered to the list before
the list 'shut down'.
