This is my limited understanding.

In message http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2012/01/msg02236.html
the first "Reply-to" link has this HTML code.
  <li><a href="mailto:debian-user&#64;lists.debian.org?In-Reply-To=&lt;171057406.47014.38985@heaviside.invalid&gt;&amp;Subject=Re:%20Re (2): /usr/lib/mutt/mailto-mutt">debian-user&#64;lists.debian.org</a></li>

When viewing the page in Iceweasel, a click on the link invokes mailto-mutt with 
arguments containing header information.  mailto-mutt attempts to set up the 
message for mutt in Nano.  If you open 
and click on the Reply-to link the process might work correctly.  I get this.

To: w.ca;/usr/lib/mutt/mailto-mutt@joule.shaw.ca, debian-user@lists.debian.org

Obviously the first address is broken.  debian-user@... is right.  I don't understand 
the invokation of mailto-mutt well enough to perceive what is going wrong.  Is 
the problem in iceweasel or in mailto-mutt or in the perl script?  

Astonishing convolutions just to make an email and I need to look deeper.
