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.
