I might be wrong here, but I think it is gmail's "feature" not to show
you your own emails that are coming back via mailing lists. I was
investigating similar complain by a gmail user that he does not
receive his own emails via mailing list, and my conclusion was gmail
silently deletes them.

Hope this helps
