As 5.11 equals 5.10.8 plus some bug fixes, I'm surprised about the
different behavior.  And for `nnfolder.el' there is no code change
since the 5.10.8 (2006-04-11) at all, only a copyright update (cf. cvs
diff -r v5-10-8 -r nnfolder.el).  Also the other changes
after 2006-04-11 don't seem to be related.

Unless someone offers a better suggestion you could (as you seem to be
able to reproduce the problem) to try to identify the responsible file
as follows:

(1) See which files differ from 5.10.8 to 5.11:

export g511=/path/to/emacs/lisp/gnus
export g5108=/path/to/gnus-5.10.8/lisp
cd "$g511"
for i in *.el; do
  diff "$i" "$g5108/$i" > /dev/null || echo $i;

(2) Start an Emacs with 5.11, don't start Gnus.

For the first file in the list from (1), load the 5.10.8 variant of
the *.elc file explicitely:

M-x load-file RET $g5108/FOO.elc RET

Copy the folder/marks files.  Start Gnus.  See if the problem

(3) Repeat (2) with the next file until you found the responsible

(4) Compare the files and try to find out the offending change.
Report back.

Bye, Reiner.
