Perhaps the problem is in my .emacs settings; the passwords are set
correctly. I know, because I can read the groups in Thunderbird.  I am still
baffled.  News reading from the primary site ( works
perfectly; it's the secondary one that fails:

(setq nntp-ssl-program "/usr/local/ssl/bin/openssl s_client -quiet -ssl3 
-connect %s:%p")
(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp ""))
(setq nntp-authinfo-user "reingold")
(setq nntp-authinfo-password "XXXXXXXX")
(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
      '((nntp ""
              (nntp-open-connection-function nntp-open-ssl-stream)
              (nntp-port-number 563)
              (nntp-address "")
              (nntp-authinfo-user "reingold")
              (nntp-authinfo-password "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"))))
