Ah yes, I can reproduce this :-/. Both in GuixSD and with Guix on top of
ArchLinux.  The 'gnew' command does work if you pass it the name of the
new group as an argument, that's why I didn't notice this.  It should
interactively ask for a name if you don't pass one so that's still a

Maybe that's a bug upstream? It would be good to try StumpWM 18.11 on
another distribution to see if this is specific to Guix. I cannot
install it on ArchLinux though at the moment.

I'll try to investigate more this week when I have more time.
