It seems like you may still be missing something here.  Your first
message was received on 2006-05-11 at 14:59 GMT and sent to the cygwin
mailing list with almost no lag.  Your second message was received at
2006-05-11 15:15.  That means that there was ~15 minute delay between the
two messages.

I don't want to belabor this point but it seemed like you think that
gmane is somehow a required mechanism for communicating to the cygwin
mailing list and that is not the case.  gmane is a completely separate
site with completely separate rules.  You don't need to know anything
about gmane to send email here.
