gnus agent and posting

From: William Xu
Subject: gnus agent and posting

User-agent: Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/22.2.50 (darwin)

I put gmane into unplugged status(all the time): 

| {} (offline) (agent)

Tell agent not to queue whenever possible: 

| (setq gnus-agent-queue-mail nil)

And running the gnus agent as a cron job, for fetching news and sending
queued mails.  

Now when I try to post in some gmane list, like this one(all already
authenticated to gmane long ago), the correct behaviour should be: 

  1. i send the post
  2. the post appears in the "nndraft:queue" group
  3. at some time(my config is 10 minutes a round), gnus agent cron job
     will send out the post. 
Do I understand it right? Sometimes it really works as described.  

There are two problems I've met: 

  1. At *many* occassions, after step 1, it doesn't appear in the
     "nndraft:queue" group, i checked the gmane list from web, the post
     doesn't appear there either.  After some reasonal time, I can
     confirm that: it's gone!!! Why?? (I'm wishing i don't have to
     resend this post too many times...)

  2. Now it seems the "nndraft:drafts" group likes keep mails written in
     the middle way, even after I've sent out the mails finally.  So i
     sent a mail, i must delete a draft explicitly...  This also only
     happens at random, not always.  

I don't have the above problems when I don't use gnus agent, except that
gnus always takes control of my emacs brutally, rude gnus!

Can anyone save me? 


At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find
at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
