The references are just fine, they correctly references my message.

I expect the newsgroups gateway *should* work.  So this is to fix,
rather than suggesting gmane as a workaround (the issue of it being
slower is a separate issue).

I believe this is be on the GNU side, because I saw references referring
to same garbled message-ids, with “mailman” in them: so if different
newsgroup users, such as Emanual Berg and Barry Margolin gets the same
references while using different gateways to usenet, and this one has
“mailman” in it, I think it is not only common to all newsgroups users
(thus coming from GNU), but also coming from either mailman, either
something interfacing with it, I guess.

The question is why.
