With that done I get this error: something about listp nnimap being
the wrong type argument.  

>From Messages buffer:

  Reading c:/users/harry/.newsrc.eld...
  Opening nnfolder server on archive...done
  gnus-find-new-newsgroups: Wrong type argument: listp, nnimap

When I set debug on error, and the debugger gives the error, windows 7
pops up a dialog asking me if I want to attach a debugger or not,
either way I answer, emacs closes before I can get at the backtrace.

I know there is some way to make emacs write the error to disk as it
happens but I don't now how to do it.

Anyway, this is the code in gnus:

    (setq gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nnimap  ""))

But for the moment I can't post a backtrace.

So before getting into splitting I'll need some help just getting the
first steps.

If I just eval that line alone it shows:

 C-c C-e at the end of:
    (setq gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nnimap  ""))
   `(nnimap "")'
