Oh... that's something I haven't used before, sorry.

Are you using it as directed, as an element of `nnmail-split-fancy'?
Simply calling it in your gnus file isn't going to produce the correct
results, the function needs to be a part of that variable's value to do
the right thing.

If that doesn't work, try putting (gnus-group-split-setup t) in your
gnus file? That looks like it will set up the correct hooks for
