But that's still the mail client, not the NNTP software.

It's a problem with how mailman is configured. Yes, the user can remove the
second e-mail address from "To" when replying, but that's easy to miss, and
as I understand it, the e-mail client is doing the correct thing when it
puts all of the addresses in the "Reply-To" header in "To" when responding.
Mailman shouldn't be putting two address in the "Reply-To" field if the
first place, and if didn't, then this wouldn't be a problem.

And no, that's not a problem with NNTP, but it's a problem with the
interface that many of us use to interact with the newsgroup, and it's not a
problem with the clients that we're running ourselves to read and send
e-mail to the mailing list.

Just to let you know, Thunderbird (what I use to post to NNTP) does not do that. Here's what the headers TB generates:
