Looking at `message-canlock-password' I can hardly believe that an
error in message.el is responsible for that:

,----
| (defun message-canlock-password ()
|   "The password used by message for cancel locks.
| This is the value of `canlock-password', if that option is non-nil.
| Otherwise, generate and save a value for `canlock-password' first."
|   (unless canlock-password
|     (customize-save-variable 'canlock-password (message-canlock-generate))
|     (setq canlock-password-for-verify canlock-password))
|   canlock-password)
`----

Can you reproduce it?  Maybe it's best to submit a bug report via `M-x
gnus-bug RET'.  I suspect something fishy in your setup.

Maybe you can also edebug the functions `customize-save-variable'
and/or `custom-save-all' to see what's happening.

Bye, Reiner.
