Hmm, the references don't match.  The mail-to-news gateway seems to be
setting the message ID on its own but your storage (nnimap) keeps the
message with the original message ID.

I am using the gnu.emacs.gnus newsgroup over NNTP, though.  Is there an
example of a pure e-mail exchange where looking up the parent is
failing for you?
