Check for an alias list that contains multiple paths to Maildirs
where one (or more) of the Maildirs(accounts) do not exist.
qmail-local see's the missing Maildir as a temporary error, stops
delivery to the list and schedules it for delivery again. And it
will run into the same time on each subsequent delivery. THis
has the result of deliverying "multiple copies" to the first users
in the alias list.
Instead, use forwards inside a list instead of paths to the Maildir
