BTW, one thing is really annoying with gnus is that it screw all my
current window configuration (window layout) when I start composing a
new article/mail.

I did (setq gnus-use-full-window nil) but gnus always use a full
window when writing a new mail.

Do you  have/know any setup which could fix this behaviour ?
