More or less, you didn't misunderstand my analysis, but I didn't use
built-in tls because its not the default (I did see some
references to it, and the function seems to be fboundp (whereas in linux
its not) but the code path didn't lead that way for some reason).

With emacs -Q, setting gnus-select-method that way and then doing M-x gnus

If the builtin tls fixes this and its the "recommended way" it should
be the default no?

Maybe it *is* the default but emacs -Q possibly configured itself to use
some external gnutls and configure itself after it. I'm using cygwin, so
that might be the case. In that case, this might be seen as a cygwin bug,
in which case I apologize for the noise.

btw: how to I configure emacs to use builtin gnutls?
