No auto login to news

User-agent: Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/22.3 (gnu/linux)

I've set up a new box and most things look ok, but I still can't get
gnus to login to my nntp server without having to do it manually each
time.  I got the server ok, my .authinfo file looks good, I've got my
old customized .emacs file working.  I'm stumped.  Seems there's a
variable somewhere I'm missing.  The one that grabs the info in the
~/.authinfo file and uses it.  Works ok on my other box, but not this
one, despite same ver of linux and emacs.  I'm even letting my dribble
file run amok and saving it.  What am I missing?

Here's my .authinfo file:

machine login notbob@pp.newsgroups.user password
xxxxxxxx port 119 force yes
