Populating and updating the active file local cache and keeping gnus fro

Subject: Populating and updating the active file local cache and keeping gnus from querying Astraweb after '1g'

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.3.50 (gnu/linux)

I've configured gnus to only fetch my mail (with nnmail) when I press
'1g' (and also at startup). Nevertheless, since I've added a new nntp
binary server (Astraweb) gnus always wastes some precious seconds
reading the active file from this server as you can see in the extract
below. Is that unavoidable? This is from *Messages* after starting gnus:

| Opening nnfolder server on archive...done
| Opening nntp server on
| Opening nntp server on
| Opening nntp server on Astraweb US SSL...done
| Opening nnml server on
| 165 new newsgroups have arrived
| Checking new news...
| Reading active file from Astraweb US SSL via nntp...
| Reading active file from via nnml...
| Reading incoming mail from file...

On a related note, and proably more important too, I can only browse
through Astraweb's groups if I enter the *Server* buffer whereas I'd
rather like to be able to have them in the Killed (or Zombie if new)
Groups list so I can see them when I press 'A k'. Is this possible? I've
tried recreating the active file with gnus-cache-generate-active, also
gnus-group-find-new-groups (with one and two C-u prefixes) but I keep
seeing only the groups from old servers (gmane, gwene, and my primary

A list of pertinent variables:

gnus-activate-level 5 (changed from the default which is 6) 
gnus-group-default-list-level 5
gnus-group-use-permanent-levels nil
gnus-level-default-subscribed 3
gnus-level-default-unsubscribed 6
gnus-level-killed 9

gnus-level-unsubscribed 7
gnus-level-zombie 8
