Running Emacs 27.2.1 and Gnus 5.13.

I have emails with multiple attachments. I can successfully
save them one by one with "K o". When I want to save all at
once with "X m" (gnus-summary-save-parts) I get the prompt to
save type */*, which I accept, then the folder, which I
accept. The command returns with no error message but nothing
is saved anywhere that I can find. No messages in the
*Message* buffer either.

Any thoughts appreciated.

That should be a regexp, not a glob pattern.

Ah, thank you. That's it, and a more careful look at the elisp
code now also makes it clear. ".*" works perfectly.

But that raises the question, why should */* be the default? I
certainly found it misleading. You would think, great, this is
a glob pattern for everything, but it actually matches nothing!

Finally resolved all of this. */* was somehow stuck in my
history. 'image/.*' is the original default. I guess the doc
string could be a little better but in the end this is user
error on my part.
