I would guess that "warlord" (or "mailman-owner") is the target of the
mailman-loop address.  So there's a loop somewhere, probably in the
"mailman-bounces" address.  If you've set your list owners to the
mailman list or something like that, this might happen, I dunno.

In our Mailman installation, the mailman-loop address is directed to a
file rather than a person.  Maybe Mailman changed policy in this
regard at some point, and the new generated config directs to the
owner rather than a file?  Or perhaps Fedora, if you're using the
Fedora configured Mailman.
