bug#7798: gnus-summary-next-article selects the nil window

From: Stefan Monnier
Subject: bug#7798: gnus-summary-next-article selects the nil window
Date: Thu, 06 Jan 2011 23:06:12 -0500

Package: Emacs
Version: 24.0.50

When I reach the end of a group in Gnus, if I have the *Group* buffer
displayed in a separate frame, pressing `n' signals an error about
select-window being called with a nil argument.

This is because of the following piece of code in gnus-summary-next-article:

      ;; For some reason, the group window gets selected.  We change
      ;; it back.
      (select-window (get-buffer-window (current-buffer)))

At this point the selected frame is the one displaying the *Group*
buffer, and the current-buffer is the *Summary...* buffer, which is not
displayed in this frame.  I added a 0 argument to get-buffer-window
which seems to work around the problem, but fundamentally I'm not sure
it's right for this code to assume that *Summary...* is
displayed somewhere.
