OK.  I went ahead and removed the Ubuntu 'gnus' package, and changed
to gnus-5.10.8 from the 'tar' file.

When I first started the newest version, it asked if I wanted to
convert my files to 5.10.8.  After first backing up ;-), I said 'y'.

Everything seems OK except for one thing:  many, many of my previous
read files showed up again as unread.  Not sure why that happened ...

Might there be *other* conversion "issues" that haven't yet appeared?

Anyway, I'm going to go with this version for now.  If I still have
problems, I'll post again.

Thanks for all the help,


PS One other thing.  I'm using emacs-21.4.1 ... is that fully
   compatible with gnus-5.10.8?
