I did check the obvious things like permissions and ownership.  None
were involved.  I did dicover that if I take the time to hand create
nnml with the same name minus the suffix `.in' so using the above mbox
group named  If I hand create an nnml group by the
name `nnml:friend-name' then the next time I press `g' get news and
mail, gnus will slurp that mbox groups into the nnml group I created.

But, that isn't the way its supposed to work... That hand created part
isn't part of the plan. But, at least I have a work around while I'm
slugging away at getting my mail working some way or other.
