Thanks for the response!  But that's not the problem.  I don't have a
.gnus or .gnus.el, and the parens in .newsrc.eld are perfect.

I just checked, and my .newsrc-news-dribble file seems to have been
truncated!  It is missing parens, but perhaps more importantly, it is
missing many lines for many of my groups!  This probably happened when
the disk ran out of space while I was in gnus...

Is there a way of replacing the .newsrc-news-dribble file?

Thanks,

Roger
