No, I don't think you realize the extent of the problem.
Failed groups do not show up specially in my experience (maybe they do
on the first connection, but for long-lived Gnus sessions this is

Then when prompted for your IMAP password, type in a wrong password.
Result: Gnus just keeps on going, treating the server as "offline".
