With a bit of help from Lars, this is now resolved. I now realise the
fix is the same as that given in bug 20610. (sigh)

in the server buffer I changed one line into this:

(nnimap-split-methods nnmail-split-fancy)

and, in .gnus.el I renamed nnimap-split-fancy to nnmail-split-fancy:

;;(setq nnimap-split-fancy
(setq nnmail-split-fancy
