I may be the first but I'm not the only. :-)

I set my "Reply-To" to the list because I want all replies to my posts to go
to the list.  I don't want a copy coming to me and the list if someone does a
"Reply-All" and I don't want to have the discussion taken off-list and come
only to me personally if someone chooses just "Reply".  Setting the "Reply-To"
field is an easy way to make sure that my intent is preserved without people
replying to my posts having to think about it.

There is something wrong with your email client, then. You should investigate

Either that or you are just hitting "Reply" instead of "Reply-All".  Further
discussion of this is OT for this list though so if you have further comments
that you'd like to share, you'll need to follow-up on the cygwin-talk list.
