Sorry, I don't think I follow: mail-source-movemail-progam is a
variable in Gnus, and its default is nil.

And I don't see how you concluded that the --emacs flag is
unnecessary: the Mailutils manual says it causes movemail to "output
information used by Emacs rmail interface", i.e. this is unrelated to
Gnus.

What exactly was the regression, and which change do you propose for
the branch?

Thanks.
