Those "(eshell-defgroup" should not be in loaddefs.el but in
lisp/eshell/esh-groups.el.  This is done by autoload.el, so either we
have a bug in autoload.el that sometimes makes it ignore the

  generated-autoload-file: "esh-groups.el"

in the files, or there's some other autoload.el that gets in the way.
