Gnmpf, I cannot reproduce the problem anymore. I don't even know if the
problem existed sometime at all or if I was confused, which is more

Whenever I add an abbrev interactively it goes into the local
abbrev-table (one of the th-<mode>-abbrev-tables), which is correct.

So the only question is why gnus uses text-mode-abbrev-table (where
interactively added abbrevs go, too) when there's a
message-mode-abbrev-table in `edit-abbrevs' by default.

A morning without coffee is like something without something else.
