Ahh yes it does.

I miss spoke earlier in the thread and said closing the emacsclient
session `killed the server too' but I really meant what you quote just
above.. that it kills the gnus session on the server. 

So no, my emacs-23 version is fairly recent, I just wasn't using the right
command to leave the gnus session.
Using the one you suggested C-x 5 0, and C-x C-s does the right thing.

I see that information in the documentation now... I'd seen it before
too but somehow didn't connect it to leaving a gnus session.

If you just change buffers (C-x b) out of gnus then C-x C-s, it does kill gnus
on the server, but that makes sense when I thought about it a little
