As you've noticed, it's not on lore, and it's also not on any other LKML
archive out there (I've checked,, So,
I'm not sure precisely what happened, but it would appear that despite
the CC in the headers, the mail never actually passed vger.

I wonder if vger doesn't properly process "CC" headers when both letters
are caps, but it's a very thin guess. As I don't have any access to
vger, I can't shed much more light on this either.
