[Mailman-Users] mail forwarding loop

I am running the current version of Posfix with the current version of
Mailman.  This may actually be a Postfix question, but I have queried
the postfix-users lis and I think they are weary of hearing this

One subscriber is receiving all list messages, but when she posts to the
'listname' list, she gets this:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

     Subject:  MemberClicks
     Sent:     10/9/2006 3:24 PM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

     listname at mydomain.state.or.us on 10/9/2006 2:52 PM
           The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but
did not report a specific reason.  Check the address and try again.
If it still fails, contact your system administrator.

           < mydomain.state.or.us #5.0.0 X-Postfix; mail forwarding
loop for    listname at mydomain.state.or.us>

I checked the Postfix logs and see this:

Oct  9 14:51:37 gatsby postfix/nqmgr[2397]: C24354405E:
from=<user at email.com>, size=5680, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

Oct  9 14:51:37 gatsby postfix/local[21553]: C24354405E:
to=<listname at email.com>, relay=local, delay=1,
status=bounced (mail forwarding loop for
listname at mydomain.state.or.us)

I have been reading other information about mail forwarding errors in
Postfix, but none of them seem to apply here. Can someone give me some
tips as to what is happening? This is a small list and the list is not
subscribed to itself.
