If the message contains the same message-id which it sounds like it should, it should be really easy to filter. If majordomo or whatever your mailing list agent is gets messages delivered to it by procmail, you just do:

:0 Whc: msgid.lock
| formail -D 16384 msgid.cache
:0 a:

in procmail and you should rarely if ever see duplicates.

Gmails website didn't list any suitable NOC-type contact addresses, nor are there any on the NOC list site.

The fact we're seeing discrete SMTP connections does make it look like the problem is definately related to the-other-end and at the minimum, some liason with an appropriate person at google/gmail would be great.
Likewise if this is a 'known issue', someone please feel free to shoot me down as appropriate....
