I've seen that with a few addresses on the list -- I'm subbed to enough 
lists that 1/2 do Reply-To munging, and 1/2 don't - so I [usually] remember 
to always check the To: list and remove one of the addresses... but it 
sounds like something odd set up in the individual users' MUAs - but I've 
never bothered to check the headers myself.

Just a statistic,               ;-)
