LOL!  Years now, indeed.  Let's see, I finally got active on the kde 
lists when I switched to 4.2 after being a kde user since 2.x, and 
remember you were active on the list from early in my activity and likely 
from earlier.  Now we're on 4.11, so nine releases, with two a year... 
over four years (it was 4.2.5, late in the 4.2 cycle, and it's still 
early in 4.11).

I'm not familiar with how gmail works, but I can speculate that the "some 
reason" you speak of might have something to do with the fact that I read 
the list and normally reply via gmane.org's list2news service, which 
presents the various lists I follow as newsgroups.  I then use the news 
client pan to read and reply, via gmane, which uses methods originally 
designed to forward posts to moderated newsgroups to their moderators, to 
in this case forward the messages to the appropriate list-serv, on the 
poster's (my) behalf.

Presumably something in that process is fooling gmail's reply detection

Thanks for the explanation.  I had wondered, about this one in 
particular, since external feedback should be interesting, but I realized 
some time ago that like me, sometimes your replies may be delayed by (up 
to) months, presumably because (like me) you get busy with other things, 
and because for some detailed replies, one must be in the proper mood, 
and have sufficient time available, to properly read and reply.

Anyway, looking forward to your comments, in time, now that you've 
discovered that trove. =:^)
