One problem I've seen is that the folks at Gmane.org provide an 
internal mail/news gateway service for many mailing lists, and if 
someone posts through Gmane.org using a newsreader that also sends 
out a copy of the message by e-mail, then you'll see two copies of 
those messages -- one directly from the poster, one via the gateway 
at Gmane.org.

This is another reason why I believe Gmane should be terminated with 
extreme prejudice.

However, this is not the only type of message duplication that can 
occur.  You really need to take a look at the raw archives for the 
list and compare & contrast the respective "Received:" headers of the 
duplicate messages.  With luck, it won't be too hard to figure out 
where the duplication is occurring.
