The reason for this regression is this change in message.el:

 2011-02-03  Julien Danjou  <address@hidden>

         * message.el (message-setup-1): Always generate References first.
         (message-mail): Return the return value of message-setup, not always t.
         (message-setup-1): Insert mail-header-separator with read-only and
         intangible properties set.

I don't know what was the rationale for this change, because if
message-setup calls message-setup-1, it will still return nil, since
message-setup-1 returns nil unconditionally.  The simple patch below
fixes this particular regression.

However, rmail-forward is still broken if mail-user-agent is set to
sendmail-user-agent.  That is a separate issue.  So please do not
close this bug, even if this patch is accepted by the Gnus developers.

Here's the patch to message.el to restore the Emacs 23.3 default
behavior of rmail-forward:
