Bingo! Well, I don't know if this happens with the web interface to gmail, but if you use POP to access your gmail account, then any emails you send to any kind of list will not get back to you (Problem being, sort of, that gmail groups things in "Conversations", and in this case will remember the email you sent out and use that copy in the conversation, instead of the one sent through the list. Not a very good excuse in my opinion, and a particularly irritating "feature".). I wouldn't really expect them to "fix" it any time soon.

In the rare occasions where my waiting powers get exhausted before someone on this very helpful list replies to my email, I just use the online archives to check whether my email was sent or not.
