Maybe this happens if people compose a multipart/alternative message
where one alternative is a text/plain message (shown by Gnus) and the
other alternative is multipart/mixed or multipart/related.

You might like to try C-d on such a message to find out its MIME
structure.  Depending on the findings, it might be possible to tell
Gnus to prefer the other alternative.

Also note that Gnus will show "(2 parts)" in the modeline of the
article buffer when you view the message.  That way, you don't need to
show the raw message to find out that there could be a problem.  And
then you just do C-d to extract whatever you like from the msg.
