But does it actually get auto-saved ?  I have pretty much the same value
as you do (with Gnus-5.9 from Emacs-CVS) but nothing gets saved: neither
drafts/#31# nor drafts/31.

Oh, I see it now: it only gets saved if I make modifications.
So I just need to get Emacs to mark the buffer as modified from the start
and it will get saved.  Good.

Now on to the next step: how do I make it so that #31# is listed in
the nndrafts:drafts folder ?

You see, I'd like to be able to hit `F' or `R' on messages to which I want
to reply and be sure that this will be remembered in nndrafts:drafts in case
I forget to reply and leave Emacs (willfully or not).
