mail sends repeatedly forever, despite getting through

This was on haiku-r1a2-rc-hrev36423-x86gcc2hybrid-raw until I upgraded just now.
Using Gmail SMTP, I sent an e-mail today, just like normal. Well, somehow, the mail_daemon got confused, and didn't think it had sent it successfully. So it tried again, and kept trying, and kept succeeding. My friends got flooded with 80+ copies of this one e-mail before Gmail finally stopped accepting the messages altogether because I'd hit my daily cap.
Now, when I first caught on that it seemed to be sending something every time it checked the mail, I looked at the out folder, and the particular e-mail just said 'Sent' for its status.
No steps to reproduce it.
