rmail-reply produces incorrect mail header

Subject: rmail-reply produces incorrect mail header

Dear emacsers,

For some time now (starting with emacs23.3) I sometimes experience that 
rmail-reply (or supercite, or feedmail, or whatever) produces an incorrect 
`To:' field.  Apparently this only happens with mails from certain senders (my 
father for instance).

In the past I just deleted the `In-reply-to' header from the reply before 
sending it, ugly but worked -- unless I forgot to delete...  I'm afraid I'm not 
sufficiently familiar with elisp to figure that one out on my own.

To me it seems that somehow the header tag `In-reply-to: ' gets lost, resulting 
in a `To: ' header followed by an `In-reply-to' header WITHOUT header-tag in 
the following line.  But as stated above, this only happens with certain 
senders, others who supply `In-reply-to: ' as well work without trouble.

>From theory to practice:

Original mail received from my dad has headers like so:

I hit `r' to reply, and what I see seems perfeclty sane:

v--------------------------------------------------------------------------
From: enno <address@hidden>
To: address@hidden
In-reply-to:
        <address@hidden>
        (address@hidden)
[...]

But what is sent out to my smtp smarthost (and thus causes a bounce) looks like:
