bug#40069: gnus-summary-exit does not restore windows

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/26.3 (windows-nt)

I have set Gnus with the following configuration excerpt

(use-package gnus
  ;; Arrange windows:
  ;; - Group list left window
  ;; - Summary first quarter of right window
  ;; - Article bottom 3/4 of right window
  (gnus-use-full-window nil)
  (gnus-kill-summary-on-exit t)
    '((group (horizontal 1.0 (group 1.0 point)))
      (summary (horizontal 1.0
                           (group 0.3)
                           (summary 1.0 point)))
      (article (horizontal 1.0
                           (vertical 0.3 (group 1.0))
                           (vertical 1.0  (summary 0.25 point)
                                          (article 1.0))))))

The process is as follows
1. Open gnus
2. Move on top of a group and enter
3. The window is split horizontally, with a group buffer on the left and
a summary buffer on the right
4. Press 'q' to exit the summary buffer
5. The summary buffer is killed and replaced with a group buffer
6. Now I have two windows displaying the summary buffer

What should have happened
5. Gnus activates the 'group' window configuration
6. It then kills the summary buffer and I am left with one window
showing the groups

A workaround is to add
  (gnus-summary-exit . (lambda () (gnus-configure-windows 'group 'force)))

A fix would be to reorder the code in gnus-summary-exit, so that the
code related to group windows is placed before the code related to
burying / deleting summary buffers.
