Interestingly enough, there seems to be a pattern to it. All the
places where somebody starts duplicating happen when somebody (a) is
using KMail, and (b) replies to a message to 'current@' (never to
freebsd-current@), it will set the To: to freebsd-current@, and leave
current@ in the CC list. It doesn't happen every time those
conditions are met, especially if current@ is sandwiched somewhere
among other headers. Rather odd; maybe some "list reply" sort of
feature in KMail? jhb seems to get bitten by it with some regularity.
