Yes, and listmaster@redhat.com is the correct address to send these
things to.

Unfortunately, smartlist, the software that manages these lists, is
in some ways misnamed.  One of them is that it can get a bit over-excited
about cancelling loops.  Debugging this is well-nigh impossible because
smartlist is written in procmail.  I think we've investigated other
software and run into other problems that have sent us back to smartlist
with its known bugs.  So sending in a report doesn't mean that listmaster
will be able to fix it.

Sorry I don't have a better answer.  :-(
