This is a feature, not a bug, otherwise something like:

	foreach $recip (@Recipients) {

would not work. (I think... not sure how Perl handles iterating over
an array which is changing.  Maybe it copies the list once and works
on the copy?)

Right.  You have to update @Recipients yourself, if you need the
behaviour you describe.
