ok, i have found the problem. someone's home-grown mail server is 
f/&%ed up.

as a temporary fix, i set a spamfilter rule to catch the annoying 2 
messages. i'm too tired for a real solution, and will be going to 
bed now. i hope steve and chris will forgive me, because the poor 
guys get a rejection message every minute or so...

<tongue class="in_cheek">
if somebody feels bored, try to take the problem host down after 
writing a friendly message to the owner (hint: the ancient ipop-2 
exploit seems not to work).
sigh. why do distros come with public mail servers?

The handles of a craftsman's tools bespeak an absolute simplicity,
the plainest forms affording the greatest range of possibilities for
the user's hand.
That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates
outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the
absence of grace.
