I'm glad.

I don't think so, currently.  But you could write a group-entry function
(there's a hook for those) that looks at the unseen messages, runs
`gnus-registry-split-fancy-with-parent' on each one, and moves them to
the return value if it's a string (group name).  I would gladly put that
in gnus-registry.el so everyone can benefit from it.

VB> But I can live with that.

I haven't looked at that code in a loooong time.  Could you do
`M-x toggle-debug-on-error', generate the wrong type error, and post the
backtrace, to be sure it's not something local to you?
