Set those people who are using badly broken autoresponders  on
"moderated". Or unsubscribe them - someone who is not able to use a
mailing-list properly should not use one at all.
Otherwise you can try to catch those autoreplies with expressions for
the spam filter.
 Autoresponders should not respond to mails from mailing lists.
They should not respond to Reply-To:. They should not send more than
one mail to each recipient for every $x days. (How old is the
"vacation"-program? Five years? Ten? Fifteen? And there are *still*
people getting it wrong.) And, of course, you should never activate
autoresponders on accounts you have subscribend to a mailing list.
