I believe this is indeed the way it is.  I understand from previous
newsgroup discussions this is due to the fact that at least some parts
of Emacs are not multi-threaded and so other internal processes are
blocking on I/O of some sort.

I have gotten around this process by simply running Gnus in a separate
Emacs process (and another frame, obviously).  Not the most elegant, but
it does the trick.
