Indeed. And it is a bug^Wfeature of GMail, I guess, that it knows better
and ignores the Date: header of the mbox fed to it.

The only workaround I can think of is to introduce ugly one-second-sleeps.
I will do that if it proves necessary, but I do have a problem right now
because my only GitGitGadget reviewer (Stolee) is kinda busy with other
things for the time being.
