Are we sure that we giving the right answers to Gonzalo's problem?

I received his post about "Re: linux/unix to NT" twice (only his):

one had the headers:

Received: (from list@localhost) by templinux.bucknell.edu (8.8.5/8.8.5)
          id VAA07482; Tue, 2 Dec 1997 21:19:26 -0500

while the other:

Received:  (from gonzo@localhost) by newton.nowhere.cl (8.8.5/8.8.5) 
           id SAA01886; Tue, 2 Dec 1997 18:13:06 -0300

That messages took two different paths and were distributed by two
different servers (is templinux.bucknell.edu our list backup or is a
NNTP/SMTP gateway ? )
Has Gonzalo a newsfeed serving debian-devel?
