Sorry folks, I finally tracked down a mis-configuration on my side.

A spam filter rule contained the (hungry) regexp


instead of the more reasonable

  X-Spam-Status: YES

The messages I tried to bounce had this header:

  X-Spam-Status: No, score=-2.5 required=3.0 tests=BAYES_00,RDNS_NONE...

which (blame BAYES :-) matches the regexp, so the message got discarded.
