It seems different lists have a different behavior. I use Thunderbird,
and in replying to this list, it put "gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU"
in the "To:" field without including any others in the "CC:" fields. On
another list, I get the Sender in the "To:" field and the list address
in the "CC:" field. I simply click the cursor in the "To:" field,
backspace it all the way out with one last time to delete the "To:"
field, drop to the "CC:" field and change it to "To:" and it works
perfectly, no sending two emails to the sender just one to the list.
Yes, it is a little more trouble, but you'd be surprised how easy it is
to make it a habit.

For what it is worth, I forward my email to gmail, and it seems to handle it
fine. Reply adds the user in the To: field and the list in the CC: field,
I for one appreciate getting it directly to me, as it is easier to recognize
a response to my  question.
