It sort of sounds like a sendmail bug, if it logs the recipient
deletion but still uses it later on.  What version of sendmail are you
running?  I don't see any milter fixes related to recipient
modification in the release notes, but you never know.

Do you see the same problem when delivering to a local recipient
(root/postmaster for example)?  I ran a quick test and "-b
address@hidden" worked for me.
