if you are running a modern copy of mailman, your problems would be 
solved.  It will eliminate the duplicate address by not sending anyone a 
copy of a message via the mailing list if they are on the to/cc list. 
with a current copy of mailman, you can maintain the proper setup for 
the mailing list (reply to sender) and people can continue to use the 
current e-mail clients with a broken user interface (no reply to mailing 
list, only reply all).

yes, I know it's more work but it's the right thing to do.
