No, there was nothing there. I just waited until I save the "autosave"
message for this current message, and I cannot find where this has been
saved … I also looked into ~/Mail/drafts, which is where
`message-auto-save-directory' points to, but it is not there. (The
docstring for that variable says that this is the buffer where messages
are saved if Gnus is not running, but I don't know where to look if Gnus
is running.)

Is there an equivalent of `message-auto-save-directory' for gnus?

Yes, I'll do this once I can find where the messages are saved. Thank
you for the suggestion!
