This is not happening *only* with ubuntu list. I was having the same issue
with almost all the yahoo lists I'm in.
I guess the only thing we can do is write GMail an email complaining about
this. With yahoo it was happening very frequently, but now I guess it's
fixed (at least I haven't seen any email there for a while).
