The following patch (already installed in No Gnus) should fix this:

| In Emacs, you can modify `special-display-regexps' and
| `special-display-buffer-names' (I don't about XEmacs).  You may find
| <URL:http://theotp1.physik.uni-ulm.de/~ste/comp/emacs/rs-special-display.el>
| useful to find out which buffer names to add.

| A different possibility is `gnus-buffer-configuration'.  Katsumi
| Yamaoka has posted his setup for new frames some time ago on ding, see
| <URL:http://theotp1.physik.uni-ulm.de/~ste/comp/emacs/gnus/rs-gnus-win.el>.
| IIRC he has posted an update later.  I don't have the Message-Id for
| it and I didn't include it in `rs-gnus-win.el' because I switched to
| the special display solution.
