To fix the problem, I ultimayely had to erase the original forwarding link and establish a new one using precisely the same settings. I still don't know why the Blackberry stopped receiving forwarded emails from gmail, especially since there was no problem sending emails from the device.
There is a known issue with GMail POP access and BIS that once you've received 400 messages from GMail, it stops working. Now I ran into it myself, and fixed it, and then for some reason it won't break again. Perhaps it's the upgrade to BIS 2.1 that Cingular did shortly after releasing 2.0.
Here's the article from RIM on the problem: Article Number: KB-04792
and an KB article from RIM on setting up GMail: Article Number: KB-03701
And the link to the thread on the Cingular froum that led me to them: Using Gmail with BIS - new info - RIM BlackBerry - Cingular Customer Forums
Hope that helps.
