Hi Era,

Thank you for the tip!
I put that in my .emacs file and ran "emacs -f debbugs-gnu", to no avail:

    Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading `/h/j/.emacs':

    Symbol's value as variable is void: gnus-bug-group-download-format-alist

    To ensure normal operation, you should investigate and remove the
    cause of the error in your initialization file.  Start Emacs with
    the `--debug-init' option to view a complete error backtrace.

Looks like it's because gnus things haven't been pulled in.
I guess I need to do the above on some hook that is run
after debbugs-gnu loads the definition?
