I have been doing some tests by moving old mails in Inbox/new and
testing the different configurations.

At the moment, Mutt (which works correctly) moves the mail from
Inbox/new to Inbox/cur and appends a ';S' to the name as you say.
However, when starting Gnus, new mail is directly moved to Inbox/cur
without the Seen flag. And after reading it, the Seen flag is still
not appended !

Can it be due to some file locking ?
Also, would it help to do some kind of reinitialization of gnus ?
