Yeah, I was wrong.  You can put as many advices at a function as you

But at least, I know what causes the warning.  Here's a recipe:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun foo-foo ())
(defadvice foo-foo (before foo activate))
(defun foo-foo ())
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So you first define an advice on the function `foo-foo', and then the
function gets redefined.  In your case,
`gnus-summary-select-article-buffer' gets redefined at some point in
time.  Not sure why, though...

What you can try is this:

  M-: (setq ad-redefinition-action 'error)
  M-x toggle-debug-on-error RET
  M-x gnus RET

I suspect something first loads the gnus version bundled with emacs, and
then you load the git version.  But I cannot find the source of the
problem in your configs (which are pretty confusing.) :-)
