Mike Klinke is going to get two copies of this because
there were two addresses in the reply-to field.

I think that it usually happens when someone CC's the list,
but doesn't put it in the reply-to entry.
To send to the list automatically, one must do a reply-to-all.
The first author gets one copy sent to him automatically
and another through the list.
Neither copy has the list as the main address.
Both have it CC'ed.
The cycle continues.
