So yesterday in a attempt to recover a fsck'ed archive I upgraded a
Mailman 1.0rc3 install to 2.0b6.  

All went well and every thing updated perfectly and I was able to
the archive from the mbox file.  'Twas great.  I love it.

This morning there are three subscribe confirms in my inbox that have
sent to the list.  It seems that the Reply-To: field had bee munged to
point at the list.  Odd.

So I jump into the list config and find that, yes, the owner of the list
had set the Reply-To: to point at the list (bad owner, I know..) So I
reset it to not munge the Reply-To: and everything start working fine
again (except that I have about 300 unhappy users...)

It seems that after the upgrade to 2.0b6 the Reply-To: munging setting
taking effect on the -request address too, so that
subscription confirmations went out like this (When Reply-To: was set to
point at the list):

   Subject: dirGames-L -- confirmation of subscription -- request 264279

I assume this is a bug?  Has this been noticed / fixed?

Or, have I just mis-configured something? (I don't think so, everything
else seems to working fine, but what do I know?)
