In 2.1b3, as opposed to 2.1b2, the Reply-To and To fields now include
the _entire_ description of the list as configured on the General
Options page. See below:

I have scoured the admin pages and the NEWS document, but I can't find a
way of turning this off.
Is it a bug? It would make much more sense if it were the _name_ of the
list ("Blah", in the example above) rather than the list description,
which isn't always worded to serve as a recipient address.
If it is a feature, I think the design team should reconsider their
choice, or add a new data field explicitly for this purpose. But to use
a list description (albeit a supposedly terse one) as the name of a
recipient is not a very good idea.
