I finally solved the problem by setting 
(setq gnus-agent nil)

Why is the gnus-agent enabled by default for the imap servers ?

Quoting the manual,
 "If you have a mail back end, it would probably be nonsensical to have it
 covered by the Agent" 
 and I agree but below on the same page is written
 "By default, all `nntp' and `nnimap' servers `gnus-select-method' and
 `gnus-secondary-select-methods' are agentized."

It seems paradoxical to me. Imap is a remote mailbox protocol and so I don't
think it should be agentized by default.
