[Mailman-Users] Is this a feature or a bug?

I have a brand-new installed Mailman 2.0.6 on mydomain.com. I set up an
announcement list configured as follow:

host_name		mydomain.com (default)
reply_goes_to_list	Explicit Address
reply_to_address	info at otherdomain.com

In fact, I want to force all replies to some contact address on another

Messages go out fine, but the Reply-To header is created as
Reply-To: info at mydomain.com

Mailman seems to use the host_name to create the reply address even if
it's set to some other domain. Is it a bug? A feature? Or maybe a
problem with my MTA (Sendmail)?
