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
\*Messages\*

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 .

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?
