	That is because we don't trap  user%remotehost@thishost  type of
	relaying at the moment.

	I think the 1st, and definitely the 2nd alternate processings
	are broken in up to, and including 2.99.50s10.  A fix for it
	is in my CVS, but I have not had time to make proper *release*

	The third alternate works just fine.
	(Now you can guess, what I use normally...)

	I have now 4 days before I fly to Orlando for IETF; anybody
	around Florida wishing I could drop by during the 1st week of
	December ?
