I agree but wanted to tell you that I too was seeing that problem for
a time.  I cannot recall now what I did to stop it, or maybe it just
went away on an update of nognus.

And I'm not finding anything in .gnus, .emacs or site-start.el
regarding smtp or send.

Sorry I cannot help but at least you know there is some kind of fix.

OOOPS back that `can't help' part up a minitue

 I checked .emacs-custom on `send' and think I've found the fix

     '(send-mail-function (quote sendmail-send-it))))

Must have done that in customize but I agree with you that I shouldn't
have had too.  Why change a default that has worked well for must of
us for so long. 

Maybe its a reflection of where the majority of the emacs user base is.
