Since this also happened for some messages on kde-cvs it's more likely 
that mailman chokes on some messages than that is 
responsible for this. Luckily, so far all bug reports that arrived at

Please note that at most one CC header is allowed according to the 
Internet Message Format specs (RFC 2822). Of course it would be nice if 
KMail would nevertheless read all CC headers.
