Tripled ONLY on search.  Scrolling through message list shows only 1
copy of each message.  Looking at Gmail with a browser, also only
shows one of each.

GMail is only an IMAP server in that it supports the IMAP protocol -
its internal data model bears little resemblance to a 'traditional'
mail server.  It seems to care little about the uniqueness of Message-
ID, for example.

GMail does not does not use folders, it uses "labels".  Folders are
emulated.   This means you get occasion oddities. 

Does your search span multiple "folders" [aka labels]?  As a message
can have multiple labels it can be in multiple "folders" simultaneously
- you may get multiple results [aka: the same message multiple times].

This is sort of like - if you are familiar - with CalDAV/CardDAV when a
resource exists in multiple collections, something CalDAV/CardDAV fails
to provide a completely rational/clean response to [one can usually 
301 "Location" reply to the GET contents, but what happens in a
PROPFIND is not so flexible in any cross-client compatible way].
