I can never get this to work properly (running a nearly up-to-date No
Gnus 0.3). When I start up Gnus is unplugged mode, it still tries to
connect to my non-agentized groups, and fails when I try to enter any
of my agentized nnimap groups.

Using the agent always sounds like a great idea, but even these simple
operations don't work right, at least for me. I submitted a bug
report┬╣, and I've seen some recent discussion here on the same
problem, so I don't think I'm the only one seeing this.
