Thanks, that is very useful.  Does the patch below give good results,
both in your Gnus scenario and when epg-find-configuration is called
in other contexts you are aware of and use?

Lars, can you or someone of the Gnus team tell why
nnimap-open-connection-1 binds coding-system-for-* to 'binary?  I
don't understand the rationale, as the code which uses this connection
seems to expect ASCII text in response.  What am I missing?  (I tried
to find the change(s) which introduced those bindings, but that seems
to have been done when Gnus was maintained on a separate Git
repository, and the relevant commits aren't visible in the Emacs
