Just a quick note to let Julian, et al. know that I've been unable to
reproduce this issue.

We appear to be running a similar setup - RH 7.2 (fully updated),
Sendmail 8.11.6, Perl 5.6.1, Mailscanner 3.15-3, SpamAssassin 2.01, and
Mailman 2.0.8. (Although, I don't recall seeing which version of Mailman
you're running.)

I suppose I could upgrade Mailman to 2.0.9 and see if it starts breaking.
