Trying to use nnmaildir

Hi all,

I'd like to use gnus as my MUA.

On my system, qmail delivers incoming mail to a Maildir named ~/Maildir/

I have another set of Maildirs in ~/mail/ in which I archive messages
manually from ~/Maildir/

Inside of ~/mail/ there's also a symlink named INBOX which points to
~/Maildir/; this is to satisfy my IMAP server.

Here's my .gnus.el setup:

(setq gnus-select-method '(nnnil ""))
(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
      '((nnmaildir ""
                   (directory "~/.nnmaildir/")
                   (target-prefix "../mail/")
                   (expire-age never)

I've created ~/.nnmaildir/ and have symlinks in there to all the Maildirs
in ~/mail/ (including the INBOX symlink).

When I start Gnus from emacs (M-x gnus), none of my mail folders show up
in the group list.  If I type 'g' I still don't get any folders, even if
there's new mail in ~/Maildir/.  Gnus is definitely finding the Maildirs,
because there are .nnmaildir directories inside each one of them.

Can somebody help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?  I'm using emacs-21
and gnus from Debian unstable.
