It must be a blocked breather surely, have you had the tank off to see if there are any pipes squashed or blocked?

I've not had reason to take my tank off yet do I don't have any personal experience of what to look for but I can't think of any other cause, petrol gets pumped out of the tank and air has to replace it otherwise you'll get the problem you mention...
