Actually, I have mail-sources unset, so it's nil.

I have also tried removing (nnml "mail") from
gnus-secondary-select-methods, and I've also tried changing it to
(nnml "mail" (nnml-get-new-mail nil)). Either of those changes results
in my IMAP inbox being empty, and teh email disappears (it's in an
Incoming... file).

I have also tried adding:

(setq nnmail-spool-file '("/var/mail/empty"))

where /var/mail/empty is an empty file, and it still empties my IMAP inbox.
