Um, unless I'm mistaken, Mailman will not accept a message in to a
mailing list if the header exists and has the list in question listed in
In other words, that's Mailman's loop detection to make sure that a
subscribed email address does not get re-routed in to the mailing list,
forming a nasty loop.
So, I think this does "fix" this problem.

Well, unless the mail logs include all the contents of the Received:
headers, not everything would be logged.
Sure, the system that the message was (directly) received from would be
logged, but none of the earlier Received: headers.
I've never had a need to do so, but I have considered (and thought about
how to do so) a pre-Mailman archive on the server that includes the full
headers as they would go in to Mailman (or formail that would remove
Grant. . . .
