You might have to edit libgmail.py directly and add a header to the 
urllib2.Request() call. Here are the relevant lines from some code I 
wrote (spoofing netscape it looks like):

user_agent = 'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT)'
txheaders =  {'User-agent' : user_agent}
req = urllib2.Request(pda, signin_params, txheaders)

See if this doesn't fix you up.
