Blank line in control/doublebounce ==> discard double bounces.
If you don't want doublebounces to hit your queue a second time (because you have, say, ten million mailboxes and as much legitimate email traffic and more spam), the following patch will immediately discard bouncing bounces. Note that doublebounceto must start with a blank line; that is, it must have one newline in it. A totally empty file means "use the default of 'posthamster'".
