The return value of gnus-dup-unsuppress-article doesn't matter, only
that remhash not be passed a nil gnus-dup-hashtb.

In other words, gnus-dup-unsuppress-article should either not be called
or should handle the case when it is called before gnus-dup-open has
initialised gnus-dup-hashtb.

I attach a patch which follows the apparent gnus-sum.el convention of
guarding calls to gnus-dup.el functions based on the value of

This fixes the immediate issue at hand, but I think there may still be a
problem when gnus-suppress-duplicates is enabled at a later time.  I
think that deserves a separate bug report, though.
