[rt-users] cc:'s and replies driving me bonkers!

Surely this is something a lot of you deal with...
User sends our support queue an email, and cc:'s her supervisor so he gets
added as a CC.
Ticket is created, all's well.
Supervisor replies to the original (non-rt-generated) message he was cc:ed
on, leaving our support queue in the recipient list, which seems like a
Second ticket is created because the subject lacks the [queue #xxx] at the
User replies to her supervisor's email, which is a direct reply to her.
Still no [queue #xxx] in subject, rt still cc:ed.
Third damned ticket is created.
And so on and so on.
How can this be avoided?
Obviously, not replying to the non-rt-generated email is the right answer,
but we all know that's not going to be advice that's followed religiously.
Most of our users are not "power users" and even those who are won't
likely remember to do that all the time.
Is there a magic flag that can be turned on that prevents this kind of
behavior by perhaps stripping the re: and comparing the subject to tickets
that have been opened somewhat recently, or maybe it could notice the
subject is the same as a ticket that has the replier as originator or cc
already? I'm really stretching here... Failing that, how the heck do you
deal with this??
