Most likely not a bug. Auto whitelisting is not a good feature to use for
a site wide implementation. There was a lengthy explanation of why a few
months back. The long and the short of it is a spammer can manipulate the
auto whitelist, accidently or on purpose, so their mail goes through
exactly as you noticed.
