I will not comment on the inline signing issue. I am using the latest version
of Mozilla Thunderbird (9.0.1) for my platform. I see your Reply-To header in
the message source. In this message window I do NOT see a CC to you. If you
do receive a CC of this message, please be so kind as to inform me - I will
file a bug report and change email clients in that case.
It was my understanding that this bug had been fixed in Thunderbird, but I may
be mistaken. I know that in a GNU/Linux user mailing list I have long been
signed up for, I will occasionally receive CC's not for replies to my own
messages, but for replies where the poster's To: line is to the person to whom
they are replying and the message is CC'ed to the list.
