Problem with BBDB and mail split for gnus-private

I'm running BBDB 2.34, Gnus 5.10.6 and Emacs 21.3.1 on FreeBSD 5.2,
and I have the following configuration in my gnus.el in order to split
incoming mail according to my BBDB records:

(setq nnmail-crosspost nil
      nnmail-split-methods 'bbdb/gnus-split-method
      bbdb/gnus-split-nomatch-function 'nnmail-split-fancy
      bbdb/gnus-split-myaddr-regexp gnus-ignored-from-addresses
      `(| (to "address@hidden" "root")
          ("subject" ".*\\(mix\\|mdk\\|mixvm\\)" "mdk")
          (any ,gnus-ignored-from-addresses "mbox")

In addition, I've populated my BBDB records with the requisite
gnus-public (a group name plus a regular expression) and gnus-private
(just a group name) fields.

My problem is that splitting works for gnus-public entries (i.e. mails
whose 'to' matchs one of my records) but all mails whose From: address
is in my BBDB database end up in the "spam" group (which is the
default for unmatched mails), instead of the group indicated in the
corresponding gnus-private field.

Can anyone spot what I am doing wrong?

Thanks a lot for your time.
