What's different about them and their content handling? Are they MM2 or MM3? 
(And are the message IDs the same on sent and received messages? Has the 
body been munged in any way?)

They don't get "trashed", they never make it as far as your folders. Did you 
read the page I linked? Among other things- "It appears that any message you 
receive with a Message-ID: matching one already in your gmail folders will 
be discarded as a duplicate."

Just like ffmpeg, giving better info gets better answers. So how -do- you 
send messages if not via SMTP to google? Using what userID?

I don't run ffmpeg's mailing lists (and can't directly fix this issue), but 
have been running mailman lists for 15+ years. Delivery to guugle has been a 
constant problem; and the usual answer from the mailman developers is that 
it's a happy accident when you do see your own messages to the list.
