I have configured the summary buffer line format according to olli, but this 
doesn't 
work for me. 

My .gnus.el reads like

;(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-root "\x490b3 ")                           ; "> " 
(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-root "\x4912f ")                           ; "> " 
;(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-false-root "\x490b3 ")                     ; "> " 
(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-false-root "\x490f8 ")                     ; "> " 
(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-single-indent "  ")                        ; "" 
(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-leaf-with-other "\x4903c\x49020\x490fa ")  ; "+-> " 
;(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-single-leaf "\x49034\x49020\x490fb ")      ; "\\-> 
" 
(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-single-leaf "\x490b0\x49020\x490fa ")      ; "\\-> " 
(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-vertical "\x49022")                        ; "| " 

(setq gnus-summary-line-format '"%U%R%z%I%B%d %(%[%3L: %-16,16f%]%) %s\n")

The summary buffer line looks like

   *16-Jul [ 16: Simo Lahteinen  ] Summary buffer lines howto?
       *17-Jul [ 16: Simo Lahteinen  ] 
       *20-Jul [ 38: Oliver Heins    ] 
   *16-Jul [ 31: Don Saklad      ] How to develop even better explanations, ...
       *17-Jul [ 74: B. T. Raven     ] 
           *17-Jul [ 88: Priyadarshan    ] Re: How to develop even better 
explanations...
               *19-Jul [104: B. T. Raven     ] 
               *29-Jul [ 12: Harald Maier    ] 

Is there something wrong?
