Thanks for this extra information, Ethan. That points at Gmail pretty 
conclusively as the source of the reduction in number of messages. Since 
it has long been known that Gmail suppresses CC or BCC to self, it is 
likely that suppressing duplicate messages from cross-posted mailing 
lists is also done... likely achieved due to matching Message-Id values.
