Glad to read that!

It didn't happen to me (RH9, Gnome, Metacity).  I've never tried  
it, but I highlighted the list address in your message, clicked  
the `compose' button, then right-clicked in the `To:' field, and  
the address was pasted in.  Ctrl+C in the original, click  
`compose', Ctrl+V in the compose window worked also.  Perhaps  
it's a window-manager difference.
