For me it's very often very old messages that spring back to life, not
the ones read in the last session. Maybe it's some dribble-file
conflict, I'll try to remove it altogether.

Digging through my setup I noticed that I had a
(setq gnus-always-read-dribble-file nil)
hidden somewhere. I'll see what removing it does.

So far I haven't noticed any problems with nntp, as long as it isn't
broken for me I won't fix it...
