Ahh, that might be the case. I don't think I've ever tried to archive mail in my gmail account.

I added the “All Mail” “Important” and “Starred” subscriptions, which got the missing messages in, but then added some messages in duplicate (Starred) and triplicate (Starred and Important). So I removed the gmail source, and added it back. Same initial problem. This time I just subscribed to “All Mail” and now it all looks good.

Glad to hear it's working better. If you're seeing duplicates, try unsubscribing from "All Mail", while staying subscribed to the other mailboxes.
