Something like this in PoiTracker.py in the 
getNotificationEmailAddresses method should do the trick (untested):

   if not self.getSendNotificationEmails():
       return []

   portal_membership = getToolByName(self, 'portal_membership')

   member = portal_membership.getAuthenticatedMember()
   email = member.getProperty('email')

   # make sure no duplicates are added
   addresses = sets.Set()

   mailingList = self.getMailingList()
   if mailingList:
       addresses.union_update([self._getMemberEmail(x, portal_membership)
                               for x in self.getManagers() or []])

   if issue is not None:
       manager = issue.getResponsibleManager()
       if manager:
           # Empty the current addresses.
           addresses = sets.Set()
           addresses.add(self._getMemberEmail(manager, portal_membership)
       ####### END OF EXTRA CODE
       addresses.union_update([self._getMemberEmail(x, portal_membership)
                               for x in issue.getWatchers() or []])


   return tuple(addresses)

Of course, changing the code of Poi directly is not recommended.  A 
monkey patch in a package of your own would be better, so you do not 
have to make the same change again by hand once version 1.2.9 comes out. 
  But changing the code directly may be the fastest.
