I've noticed that a few messages on my forums are appearing twice.

I use maillist.php for mailing list integration, and investigating shows that those duplicated are messages posted on the forum itself (most of my messages are posted via mailing lists).

Thinking it through, it is hard to see why messages would not always be duplicated:

  • The forum sends messages out to the mailing list
  • the mailing list sends messages to its members, one of which is an address which pipes to maillist.php
  • the forum displays messages received via maillist.php

This mechanism seems bound to lead to duplicates, so I guess there must be some duplicate checking in there somewhere? But it seems to have failed since I upgraded to 2.7.7. Any suggestions where I should be looking to track this down?
