The one weirdness I found was that some headers corresponding to
expired articles were living in
~/News/agent/nnimap/my.server/group/name/.overview and .agentview.
Those roughly corresponded to the lower bound on what Gnus was
counting as extant articles.  I ran gnus-agent-expire and it (looks
like it) got better.

Is this going to be an ongoing problem?  Why were there exactly two
articles in agent-space?  Why do I want the agent turned on in this
case?  The manual suggests that there's some interesting overlap
between nnimap and the agent -- there's that mysterious last paragraph
of info://gnus/Agent+as+Cache, for example -- but if I'm never
offline, and the only thing I read is nnimap (well, with a little
nnrss on the side) is it that useful?
