RIM's push email has all the advantage.
So based on what jsanders has noted about no advantages of the Gmail App WilieR, it would be best that you get rid of the GMAIL app since that is causing you problems and use the native BB OS to retrieve your GMAIL like I did.
Go to your Gmail and read instructions on how to set up the IMAP feature for Blackberries. You won't get into the problem that you described. I've never had it with my previous versions of BBs and there are no evidence to the contrary that I would be having this problem with my World Edition.
