[Mailman-Users] Gmail eats MM messages

I have what appears to be a case of GMail eating message posts... allow
me to explain.
I have a user, foobar at gmail.com, who posts to a Mailman list hosted on
one of my servers. According to my Exim and Mailman logs, it is
received by the MTA, passed on to Mailman, posted successfully, and sent
back out to all the recipients, including foobar at gmail.com. However,
the email never shows up in foobar at gmail.com's inbox, spam folder, or
any other folder. I went back to check the Exim log for failed or
delayed deliveries, only to find nothing (well, for foobar at gmail.com
Is it the case that since Mailman makes the posting look like it came
from foobar at gmail.com (i.e., it's claiming to be that user), and since
one of the recipients is foobar at gmail.com, that Google drops it at the
gate and refuses to even handle it because it looks forged? Has anybody
else experienced this issue?
Thanks in advance!
