Hm, to see where the splitting process delivered a mail, you can use

,----[ (info "(gnus)Splitting Mail") ]

But most probably this doesn't show anything, because you said that they
don't show up in any inbox.

I had a similar thing when upgrading from dovecot 1.1 to 1.2 (that's my
local imap server).  In 1.1, the dot was used as separator while in 1.2
it is a /.  So the old group didn't get any new messages.  Then,
I found out that I had to enter the server buffer and subscribe to
foo/bar and friends, which contained all the new and the old mails.

But I guess you use nnml or nnmaildir, right?
