Your email client is configured to set the reply-to field to the uClinux list, this
is why you are "talking to yourself". If you wish to receive direct email via
"reply-all" then post with a return address. If you are frightened of getting
spammed, then you will have to wait for the 4+ hour turnaround which is sometimes
the delay on posting onto this list, then getting a reply relayed to you!

This list has many subscribers and, consequently, is very sluggish!
