Thanks David

I did some investigation myself already, posted the details to
gnus.ding without getting response and finally fixed it myself.

As it turned out, a temporarily bad Slashdot feed apparently hosed
News/rss/Slashdot.el, and nnrss (or whatever) couldn't cope with that.

Cleaning out the cruft in News/rss/nnrss.el (which has a tendency to
accumulate it btw., e.g. killing a nnrss group doesn't remove the feed
from that file) and moving Slashdot.el out of the way made Gnus happy
