If my logic is correct, it should be the last server (Received: header 
closest to the top of the message) that received the message that was 
not duplicated.  If the two examples share one Received: header and then 
subsequent (closer to the top) are different, it is the server that 
generated last common Received header that is causing the duplication / 
sending the message multiple times.
