Hm...  I see.  That does sound useful.  But here the buffer isn't
displayed that way, so...

Yes, that's what Gnus does now, but it didn't do it on all "exit group"
commands, so things got a bit confused.  This happened to work before
because Emacs left the point alone after it had been set, but stopped
working some years ago.

But I think I've fixed the remaining commands now, so I was mostly just
curious about how this was supposed to work.
