Well that's deeply weird. You have an entry in your registry that looks like:

("" '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''\
    ((creation-time (23012 49774 793490 105000)) (group) (sender) (subject)))

Ie, no key at all, and who knows what's going on with all those quotes.

Are there many of those, or just one? And are you running an Emacs that
includes e1cc2037a918?

I looked at the code, and there's nothing that would prevent the
creation of an entry for a message that had no Message-ID, so presumably
the blank there is possible. That doesn't explain all the quotes,

Ugh, now I'm seeing more bugs in there --
`gnus-registry-fetch-header-fast' looks broken...
