Ah, you're right.  The default action is the wide reply, while with
C-u it replies to sender only.  In either case, it treats the Reply-To
header as an extra address to send the reply to.  I am the one guilty
of changing this behaviour (so long ago I had forgotten about it).  I
probably did so from a misunderstanding of what the reply-to field
means, as a rather strong indication that replies are to be sent to
the indicated address only.  But RFC 2822 seems to say otherwise.
Time to revert my mew setup to the default, then.
