This might be a feature request.

I've got Mailman 2.0.8 with sendmail on RedHat 7.2. It's a test box 
on a private network.  

My subject headers get longer and longer with each post and reply.  
Like this:    

Subject: [Mynewtest] Re: [Mynewtest] Re: [Mynewtest] Re: [Mynewtest] 
Yet another fascinating post

Annoying if you have extended conversations.  It's not clear to me 
whether this is a problem with my mail client ( I'm testing with 
squirrelmail, an open source webmail app.) or with my Mailman 

Regardless of the source, I think it would be useful if Mailman were 
able to automatically trim the superfluous "Re: [Mytest]" repetitions. 
Anyone come up against this and can give me a clue?

Thank you.
