The other day after setting up my own FoRK ripoff [1] I was
feeling snoopy so I telnetted to xent's SMTP port and expn'd the
dist list, and was surprised to find only 29 entries instead of
the 100-or-so that I expected.


So it seems like most of the dist list got nuked somehow,
or maybe one of the entries is confusing sendmail; the
last one in the list I got is <>.)
