I'm not getting any clues why gnus has stopped pulling in procmail
created mbox mail when I press `g'.  Gnus seems to completely ignore
them without any complaint or errors. Nothing spell binding in

I've been doing this for quite some time and not seeing whey it fails now

My .gnus code below has not changed for quite a long time.  These two
stanzas should be creating nnml groups from the mbox files.

They have not changed for a long while other than to being comment out
from time to time.

  (setq mail-sources
        '((file :path "/var/spool/mail/reader")
          (directory :path "/spool/in/"    :suffix ".in")))

  (setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
        '((nnml ""))) 

/spool/in both `spool' and `in' have full permissions of my user

  reader > ls -la /spool/in
  total 840
  drwxr-xr-x 3 reader nfsu   4096 Jan 26 10:40 .
  drwxr-xr-x 3 reader nfsu   4096 Jan 23 13:58 ..

Just in case /spool/in means ~/spool/in to gnus I also have a symlink
in ~

reader > ls -l ~/spool
lrwxrwxrwx 1 reader nfsu 6 Jan 23 14:31 /home/reader/spool -> /spool

reader > ls -l ~/spool/
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 3 reader nfsu 4096 Jan 26 10:40 in

Any ideas what would likely be stopping gnus from working on these
mbox files?
