When can someone improve mailing list behaviour with web mail
clients like gmail???

Well I did some testing. Might be it's a good Idea to find the reason
*before* declaring the mailing list software the culprit ;o)).

Look here:

Sorry, but what do you mean?
Obviously the mailinglist has no influence whatsoever how a webmail
or regular mailclient behaves.

Is this true? Surely different mailing list manager software will
function differently?

Even for this e-mail digest, the reply function results
in deletion of the original message content, apart from the text
shown above. This means a text editor has to be used...:(

.. Which is the case anyway - even if provided by the mail client
software :o))

Sorry, please be more descriptive. That mail (#6131) is this one:

http://www.mail-archive.com/discuss@documentfoundation.org/msg06225.html
http://listarchives.documentfoundation.org/www/discuss/msg06096.html

A digest message is received
Opening the message shows all of the content
After activating the 'reply' function, the reply text box does not
contain the original digest message content

As written in testmails - Thunderbird also makes trouble regarding this
- 4 Year old kmail doesn't. ==> Bug??

[..]

The problem is that replies to messages cannot be performed directly.
This behaviour does not occur in other mailing lists, e.g. gnuplot.

So might be they provide digest mails in a gmail more digestible manner
- i.e. not base64 encoded?

But as long as nobody claims base64 encoded mailcontent beeing improper
mail handling, this is buggy behaviour of the client software and should
be reported as Bug to the software vendor.
