I see a similar symptom, but with a different recipe:
 - start Gnus
 - open the server buffer, select a server, and subscribe to a new group
 - quit the server buffer
 - in the group buffer, kill the group line for the new group
At this point, emacs is busy but unresponsive. Breaking in with ^G
results in emacs becoming responsive agin, but all of the group lines
disappear from the group buffer.

Something is still not quite right.
