Subject: gnus queries all mail folders on startup
X-Spam-Status: No, score=0.0 required=5.0 tests=RCVD_BY_IP autolearn=failed 

I'm using nnimap in gnus to read my email.

Each time I start gnus, it polls every one of my hundreds of mail
folders, which takes quite a long time.

I've set gnus-activate-level to 5, and unsubscribed from the folders I
don't want it to scan.  I've checked, and those folders now have a
rank of 6, and so they shouldn't be scanned by default.

If I interrupt the lengthy startup process, I see a backtrace like

  accept-process-output(#<process imap> 0 100)
  imap-wait-for-tag(919 nil)
  imap-send-command-wait("EXAMINE \"sites.s\"")
  imap-mailbox-select-1("sites.s" examine)
  imap-mailbox-select("sites.s" examine)
  nnimap-find-minmax-uid("sites.s" examine)
  nnimap-retrieve-groups(("sites.linkedin" "deleted" "sites.worth1000" 
"sites.google.blogger" ...) "localhost")
  gnus-retrieve-groups(("sites.linkedin" "deleted" "sites.worth1000" 
"sites.google.blogger"  ...) (nnimap "localhost"))
  gnus-read-active-file-2(("sites.linkedin" "deleted" "sites.worth1000" 
"sites.google.blogger" ...) (nnimap "localhost"))
  gnus-read-active-file-1((nnimap "localhost") nil)
  gnus-read-active-file(nil nil)
  gnus-setup-news(nil nil nil)
  gnus-1(nil nil nil)

And I can see here that the rank of "sites.worth1000" is 6, whereas
gnus-activate-level is 5:

  ELISP> (gnus-info-rank (assoc "sites.worth1000" gnus-newsrc-alist))
  ELISP> gnus-activate-level

Info node "(gnus) Group Levels" tells me:

     Gnus will normally just activate (i. e., query the server about)
  groups on level `gnus-activate-level' or less.  If you don't want to
  activate unsubscribed groups, for instance, you might set this variable
  to 5.  The default is 6.
