Oddly enough, the duplicates have DIFFERENT dates, and apparently
the first message is coming in the normal way, and later ones are
going through the "PN5 Mail2News Gate", and getting passed back
into Linux-kernel@vger... I thought news gateways were officially
a no-no.

And that is precisely one of the many reasons it was removed.

People are subscribing mail2news gateways behind my back, like sneaky
little kids, and thats fine. It does not say much for those people,
and I do find them eventually...

(one thing which makes a "brute force" search for these things
imposible today is the new fad of disallowing EXPAND operations on
port 25 on so many sites, how the heck am I supposed to check to see
if some subscriber has a messed up .forward file?)
