In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-debian-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2001-12-06 on raven, modified by Debian
configured using `configure  i386-debian-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr 
--sharedstatedir=/var/lib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var/lib 
--infodir=/usr/share/info --mandir=/usr/share/man --with-pop=yes --with-x=yes 
--with-x-toolkit=athena --without-gif'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: 
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: C

  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

In my .emacs file I have the following hooks defined for

-------------------- .emacs --------------------
(defun amb-gnus-group-mode-hook () "Hook for GNUS group mode setup" 
  (define-key gnus-group-mode-map "g"     'gnus-group-get-new-news-this-group)

(add-hook 'gnus-group-mode-hook 'amb-gnus-group-mode-hook)

(add-hook 'gnus-group-mode-hook 'gnus-topic-mode)
-------------------- .emacs --------------------

Normally the key g is bound to gnus-group-get-new-news and M-g is
bound to gnus-group-get-new-news-this-group.  I made the change so
that g is bound to gnus-group-get-new-news-this-group since that was
more useful to me (easier to type and easier to remember since it is
the same as dired).  The change in the keybinding is confirmed by
checking with C-h k.

I use the topical format for the Group buffer and it looks like this.

   [mail] ...
   [news] ...
   [drafts] ...

All experiments are performed with the cursor on the '[news]' line.

1) When I press g nothing much seems to happen.

2) When I press M-g then the NNTP server is checked for new news and
   the '[news]' topic is expanded just as if I had pressed L

3) When I do M-x gnus-group-get-new-news it reads from the NNTP
   server, but no update of the '[news]' topic is performed.

4) When I do M-x gnus-group-get-new-news-this-group nothing much
   happens (the same as if I press g).

The function should be the same whichever key it is bound to, but this
is not the case for this one.
