Just delete it and restart gnus.  The dribble file is like a
transaction log, it just contains a backup of your recently performed
but not yet saved to .newsrc.eld  changes to .newsrc.eld.

Deleting it should just un-do any changes you did to your messages
(such as marking them read) in the aborted session.

Back up all your your .newsrc* files first, in case the result is not
to your liking, and you decide you'd prefer to reconstruct your
dribble file after all.
