GMail does not deliver my mail to me and yet I get duplicates. I've
run tons of mailing lists in my time, and I've seen this mailman issue
many times over. It happens when mailman attempts to deliver a
message, gets part-way through the list of addresses to deliver to
(subscribers), encounters a fatal exception - usually some sort of bad
email address or server connection - and then retries to deliver.
