Hmm, I'm not quite sure about this one, and it's hard to get a plain
config. As all the other message buffer cycling is provided by BBDB in
my case, it's possible that that's what's doing it for me. After I set
`message-alternative-emails' in my gnus.el, I also do this:

(setq bbdb-user-mail-address-re message-alternative-emails
      gnus-ignored-from-addresses message-alternative-emails)

That basically sorts all the "own emails" issues for me. Again, I
suspect it's BBDB that provides cycling.

Good luck,
Eric
