I've used "g" before (in XEmacs) but ever since I started GNU Emacs 22.3.1
I've had problems.  It looks like I have to wait some amount of time
before I can recreate the problem, once I've gone thru the steps above,
"g" works as desired.

Anyway, if I use "^" before M-g the server buffer contains: 

     {nnfolder:archive} (opened)
     {nnmh:} (opened)
     {nntp:news.eternal-september.org} (opened) (agent)

The groups I'm trying to refresh are the eternal-september groups.
I think "agent" must be a default setting, I don't see that I've set
it anywhere.
