That is particularly amusing/irritating, yes.

I have 3 or 4 connected accounts -- AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. -- and
when it detects what it thinks are intrusion attempts, Google notifies
me on all of them. Then the ones to non-Google services get collected
into Gmail, and promptly flagged as spam. But I suppose that, to
Google, Google errors that didn't come from Google but from non-Google
services _are_ suspicious...
