I think I fixed it by adding a 

(setq mail-sources
      '((file :path "/var/spool/mail/user-name")))

in my .gnus.

But now don't ask me how gnus & emacs worked all this time without those
lines. It did.


Ill-chosen abstraction is particularly evident in the design of the ADA
runtime system. The interface to the ADA runtime system is so opaque that
it is impossible to model or predict its performance, making it effectively
useless for real-time systems. -- Marc D. Donner and David H. Jameson.
