Ok, sorry, I must admit that I'm not really fluent in Lisp. I can find
my way around but I have hardly any grasp of such concepts in Lisp.

Ah, ok, thanks. I've disabled it as you kindly described in
<877ivtfuw2.fsf at uwakimon.sk.tsukuba.ac.jp> but, alas, it didn't help.

:-) Interestingly, until now I've never really had any difficulties (not
one crash ever) with Gnus.

That's what I currently do but it's slower and has some other problems
(especially when rendering HTML emails with w3m) which is why I still
try to get Gnus from Gnus CVS to work.

Still trying. What I don't understand is why Adrian can't reproduce my
problem. Apart from some minimal additional elisps I don't use anything
special and the error occurs even without any of my own stuff.
