	Oddly I see it at year-old 2.99.52-pre3  as well.

	Hmm... But the system I have is misbehaving and not
	able to read the  scheduler.conf  file for some reason..
	(Oh DAMN!  ok, my fault of running RedHat rawhide ...
	 Smells like gcc 2.96 is buggy at i386 ... plus glibc 2.1.92-nn
	 headers are suspect.)

	Ah, missing quotes in  aliases.cf :

                a="$(groupmembers "\1")" &&
                  db add expansions "$key" list &&
                  return $(echo $a |
                           listaddresses -e postmaster -c "$lcuser expansion" |
                           maprrouter $(newattribute $attr sender postmaster) \
                                "$lcuser" "$host" "$plustail" "$domain")

	Change that `` echo $a ''  to be  `` echo "$a" ''  and you are
	not getting extra dupication of tail-tokens.

	You may still get other alias expansions, but not spurious ones.
