I have installed a fix to accept-process-output which `correctly' interprets
the "msec" arg as milli-seconds rather than micro-seconds.

So instead of waiting 100 micro seconds, gnus now waits 100 milli seconds
which I hope will fix this "tight loop".  So please tell me if you see
this again after upgrading from CVS.
