Like I said, it looks like the system of a certain
<cymax@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> is to blame. For emphasis, a much more condensed
snippet of Received headers from a randomly selected message in the list
will show where the loop occurs:

Who are we supposed to contact for such "emergencies" (where IMHO we
should kick out the erring user with a decent message telling him/her to
fix his/her mailbox before re-subscribing)? Is
<owner-linux-xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx> a proper venue for such grievances?

I know I'm "clogging up the system" with more mail by sending to it (thus
it will loop and loop and loop and ......). But it looks like this
person's box isn't that fast so the flood is ... painful but bearable for
now. It's just that while I know which developer to get in touch with, I
don't know who the list administrator is.
