Shame on me. It was a problem with sendmail masquerading from
"lists.astrum.ch" to "astrum.ch" (through MASQUERADE_AS('...')- and
FEATURE('masquerade_envelope')-m4-macros). Together with an incomplete
delegation of nameservers (I took over the primary NS just a few days ago),
this caused major confusion.

Lessons learned:

 * Make double sure your DNS setup is correct.
 * sendmails Masquerading-stuff also applies to Reply-To:-
   header rewriting.

So, nothing blame mailman for.

ACK. I also tried to duplicate - to no avail. I now set the default to
"This List", which is required for the most part of my lists anyway.

Overall, mailman just works perfect :)
