   Make sure you kill your unsubscribed groups. This will make Gnus start
   much faster, and keep your .newsrc file sizes down to boot.

   I posted the same query recently and I got an answer to it. I am going
   to repeat the answer. What you need is a newer version of gnus,
   version 5.0.4+. I am using 5.0.12 and it works fine with me with the
   following settings:
(setq gnus-check-new-newsgroups nil
      gnus-read-active-file 'some
      gnus-nov-is-evil nil
      gnus-select-method '(nntp gnus-nntp-server))

   I would rather write: 'ask-server [for the value of
   gnus-check-new-newsgroups] instead of nil. It is more useful to most
   people, and does not increase the load time too much.
