Case in point - I just got a duplicate of your message.

Maybe openmoko needs a new, faster mailserver?  More mailserver 
bandwidth?  Or how about a duplicate message filter at the list level?  
I've gotten at least 100 duplicates today, this is getting really old.  
I have a filter for removing duplicates in thunderbird, but it leaves 
the newest duplicate, so I'm having to 'mark as read' the same messages 
over and over.
