Is there a particular reason you are reinventing the wheel and not using 
something like an alias do do what you are describing? (Just curious because 
there may  be a valid reason like you are a mail relay, etc).

While I do not know if this is a bug or not.. why not riterate through the 
list and print it to the syslog to see what is in it for testing purposes, if 
you have only a single entry for recip2 then you know the issue lies
