Package: emacs24
Version: 24.4+1-5
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I've just upgraded to Jessie (and to emacs24).  When I start Gnus
inside Emacs (pressing M-x gnus), I first get the question:

   Gnus auto-save file exists.  Do you want to read it? (y or n)

After answering (n) a message about checking for new news(?) appears
followed by:

   nntp read: 11k

At which point Gnus and Emacs hangs.

I had (of course) expected Gnus to show me my list of newsgroups with
unread messages instead.
