Public bug reported:

I'm trying to set my list up such that folks reply to the list, but can also view a poster's email in order to reply personally if they desire. I've set 'Reply-to:' to list, & I didn't strip the first 'reply-to:' header. When someone has a reply-to: address set, I get 3 addresses--the list address, the poster's address, & a mangled address that consists of the poster's address prior to the @ sign & the fqdn of the list following it. So if my list address is mylist at mysub.domain.org, & my poster w/the reply-to: setting's email is poster at somedomain.com, I'd get addresses as:
mylist at mysub.domain.org
poster at mysub.domain.org (which there is no such address) &
poster at somedomain.com.

I'm running Mailman 2.1.16. Has this perchance been fixed in subsequent
