You are right, setting 'gnus-home-directory' alone is sufficient
However, that alone triggered recreation of Mail ind News directories in
my home.
The solution for me was to move .newsrc and .newsrc-dribble to
the new location as well.

Thank you Paul.
And additional thanks to Sebastian Rose, Nicholas Dokos and
Eric S Fraga for your ideas and suggestions.
