Yes.  After adding `legacy-gnus-agent.el' (from the current Gnus
trunk; see attachment) to emacs/lisp/gnus, it worked for me.

Kevin has synched some agent-related bugfixes from the trunk to the
v5-10 branch.  It seems he forgot to install `legacy-gnus-agent.el' in
the v5-10 branch.

In order to minimize the inconvenience, I think it's best if I "cvs
add legacy-gnus-agent.el" in Emacs soon (instead of fixing it in
Gnus/v5-10 and waiting for the semi-automatic syncing).  I have to
leave now, but I can do it in a couple of hours unless someone has a
better suggestion.

Kevin, could you check for which versions a migration in
`gnus-convert-old-newsrc' is necessary for users of Gnus v5.11?  (This
version is the same as in the v5-10 branch; (gnus-continuum-version)
gives 5.11 whereas No Gnus has 5.110003.)  A problem might be that the
version numbers are not really one-dimensional anymore in the sense of

Bye, Reiner.
