Do you insist on using nnmaildir? I use nnml (never
heard of nnmaildir, although sounds sort of the same)
and never had this problem, so I don't know. I remember
it was very easy to setup mail for Gnus after talking
to a guy on this list.

(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
      '((nnml ""))
      mail-user-agent 'gnus-user-agent
      read-mail-command 'gnus)

But if you want to stick to nnmaildir I can't help
you. You know of gnu.emacs.gnus, of course?
