Thanks for the suggestion, it's a nice way to do it.

As a less invasive option, I could test for the group name in the window
configuration definition. However it seems that `gnus-group-group-name'
does not work in the summary window (is returns `nil'). Is there
a similar function that returns the name of the current group in
a summary buffer?

Thanks again,

Alan
