In the Gnus version of the emacs-24 branch this happens with the bogus
'[Gmail]' group which Gmail advertizes too.  It doesn't exist as a
group, so every time Gnus tries to do an 'initial sync'.  I solved that
a few days ago by actually *creating* a group called ['Gmail]' from
within Gnus and then setting it to 'show only if unread' in Gmail's web
interface.  Since it's a valid group now, Gnus doesn't do an 'initial'
sync for this group every time it starts.

In the trunk of Emacs, Gnus does an 'initial sync' for all groups, so I
suspect something is not saved properly in .newsrc.eld.
