I figured this out!  The problem occurs when I select multiple groups
for the search, then issue the search.  When limiting the quantity of
articles, gnus will then *not* take the newest of all the mails returned
from all the groups, but it will do this selection starting from the
first selected group and only select articles from the other groups *if
the quantity of articles is not reached*
So I only get the mails from the first group, and nothing from the other
groups if I limit to a few articles...

Hope this is somewhat understandable :)
