We had a mailer loop caused by a misconfiguration that once created
500 or so tickets.  What I did was do a search on the some matching
criteria, clicked on "update all these tickets at once" and marked
them dead.  Repeat until all are done.

If RT's database had referential integrity with cascade on delete, one
could probably issue a single delete query to the database to clear
out those tickets and all associated records.  Alas, it does not have
the references (since MySQL doesn't support them).
