This _is_ a mutt issue, and I think there are a couple ways to fix it.
I believe the first is to set your $from variable instead of letting the
MTA fill that in.  This is a new variable in 1.1 IIRC.  The other way is
to turn off Mail-Folllowup-To: altogether as you have already done (and
as I have done).  

M-F-T is set when mutt is sending mail to a list registered with the
"lists" command instead of the "subscribe" command.  The behavior of
"lists" changed somewhere around 1.1.  "lists" is now for registering
lists you want mutt to know about, but you are not subscribed to.  

All of this is off the top of my head, so it could be slightly
