I thought so.

Before starting Gnus, it was a list of rules as I've been using for
quite some time (months or years).  After starting Gnus, it was, as you
suspected, nnmail-split-fancy.  

I like the use of "only"; any tips on making that easy enough to avoid
needing quotation marks?  :-)

In customize-group nnmail-split, I see that nnmail-split-methods is now
set to nnmail-split-fancy, and it says "this option has been changed
outside the customize buffer."  I thought the only custom code that
would be executed when I started Gnus would be .gnus (or be controlled
by .gnus), and searching my .gnus for split gives

| Bill address@hidden /c
| $ grep split .gnus
| ;;;   (setq spam-stat-split-fancy-spam-group "spam")
| ;;;     (setq nnmail-split-fancy
| ;;;           `(| (: spam-stat-split-fancy)
| ;; (setq nnmail-split-methods 'nnmail-split-fancy) ; commented out 2006-12-19
| Bill address@hidden /c
| $ 

";" does mean comment, right?

I think I do see that the first thing that shows up in the mini-buffer
when I start Gnus is something like "loading c:/..../spam-stat.el", but
I have no idea why.
