Thanks a lot. I tried merging the very few differences between your conf
and mine but it didn't solve the problem. However I've finally been able
to identify the problem with mine : I was splitting the messages on this
imap account. So, in a nutshell :

- imap + gnus-agent : works fine

- imap with splitting + gnus-agent : every unread mail on the server
  gets a duplicate in the Summary buffer every time the agent fetchs
  when gnus runs unplugged. This duplicate disappears with C-g in the
  Summary buffer when running gnus plugged.

Is there a reason why splitting shouldn't be used when agent fetching ?
Are some of you successfully using the agent in this manner ?

Here are the relevant parts of my .gnus.el.

(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
        (nnimap "free"
                (nnimap-address "")
                (nnir-search-engine imap)
                (nnimap-inbox "INBOX")

(setq gnus-agent-synchronize-flags t
      gnus-agent-queue-mail 'always
      gnus-agent-prompt-send-queue t
      gnus-asynchronous t
      gnus-agent-go-online t)

(setq nnmail-split-methods 'nnmail-split-fancy)
(setq nnmail-split-fancy 
        (: gnus-registry-split-fancy-with-parent)
;;      some splitting rules... 
        (: spam-split 'spam-use-bogofilter)
        ;; all the rest
