Thank you, that catches it.  I imagine this was it.

sendmail : : allow                        # 
sendmail : : allow                        # (ditto)

I had comments *beside* the entries. Tcpd(8)
treated it as a syntax error and ignored the
allow rule (line 107), and Mr. Kotulla's mail got
caught later and rejected by the "rest of the
network" rule.

107: option "allow" requires no value
Dec 16 08:31:19 ezekiel sm-mta[33149]: hBGEVJUo033149: tcpwrappers 
(, rejection

Unfortunate that in this case it's "Live and Learn...."
