Ahem, I think you might have been led astray by your web browser here
-- Mailman does "see" the entire "From:" header, but your web browser
_displays_ it as

> > From:  "Scott A. McIntyre"

due to "<" and ">" having special meaning in HTML (i.e. the mail
address is interpreted as some unknown tag, hence ignored).

I guess Mailman could do some s/</&lt;/-like stuff when generating the
web pages, but this is not a "serious" bug.
