This is not a bug in mailman nor in KMail, you just need to set the
option in your mailman subscription to not receive your own mails
(option "not metoo"), that's all. Currently you get all your mails as
well as the one from the list.
If you receive a double mail from somebody else, this person likely
sent an extra copy to you and the list. Since only subscribers can
post on the list, this is not necessary, so everybody should use the
"reply-to-list" option only.
