I'm using pine 3.91 with the show-header-command (or something like that) 
enabled so I can see the entire header.  And yeah you're right the 
headers were getting bigger and bigger every time they bounced back to 
the list.

That account is off the list, and I've sent mail to the postmaster about 
it so hopefully that'll be the end of it.
