This is squarely on gmail. Mailman is blameless on this one.

It's my understanding there may be another few web mail services with 
similar issues.

I know that Hotmail is really bad about sending HTML only e-mails 
instead of multipart mixed with a plain-text version. This caused a 
great amount of frustration for one of my users until I was able to 
deduce just what was going on.
