(David: correction to my private message: John didn't use my subject line, but
then nor did he use the original one.)

No, I don't believe I did. I long ago learned not to start a new thread by
replying to an unrelated message, and I am sure I did not do so in this case.
Perhaps a bug in your mail client? As evidence, here are the full headers of
the message I sent:

This paragraph is moot, but for your interest I always use "Reply All" to
respond to the list. I then selectively edit the address list as seems
appropriate, which nearly always includes leaving the original author's address in.
