Actually that's the single *worst* result I have ever
encountered. Then you get one personal copy, and *no* list copies, so
no copy winds up in the list folder and there's not a damn thing you
can do about it (you receive no mails which contain enough information
to file them properly). Thread history is completely messed up.
