Please read the above carefully ;)

It wasn't gmane (only).
It was the mailing list server, thinking I posted from @googlemail where in fact my
address (putting it into gmane From: field) was @gmail (could that be gmane trying to
be smart ? Dunno. I have in fact received a complaint from the mailing list server that
the @googlemail address was seen used and it wasn't recognized.)

So to rephrase my setup :
- I have the gmane.comp.ide.lazarus.general set as nntp subscription,
- I have the lazarus at lists.lazarus.freepascal.org subscription with email delivery OFF
- I hit 'reply' on the nntp view in Thunderbird, then manually replace 'Newsgroup:' to 'To:'
and enter the lazarus at lists address (Thunderbird hints it nicely)

- Warning: unfortunately this method does not preserve cc: list.

HTH, Lukasz
