No, with -Q, `M-x gnus', `n', `B RET news.gmane.org RET', then entering
e.g. the group gmane.emacs.bugs and selecting an article with SPC (not
RET, as I mistakenly wrote above) works without error.  So it's only
with my setup that I get the "Recursive load" error; however, I now
discovered that when I quit the backtrace buffer that pops up (I have
debug-on-error set) and then type `g' on the article in the Summary
buffer, then the article is displayed as usual.  Trying to open further
articles then sometimes works immediately and sometimes errors,
sometimes as before but also like this (just displayed in the echo
area not in a backtrace buffer):

I have no idea what that means.  Do you have any suggestion how to try
to debug this?  I can try to bisect my initializations, but that will be
laborious; git bisect will probably be even more painful, since building
Emacs on this machine is quite slow.
