That also drives me crazy.  My solution is saving a cache of full list of
newsgroups from the server, and subscribe/unsubscribe groups from there.
Of course, I may miss some newly added groups, but that is not much a
problem as long as I update the cache when necessarily.  

The config looks like this: 

     ;; Make subscribing easier
     (require 'gmane-list)
     (defun xwl-gnus-group-unsubscribe-group (group)
         (ido-completing-read "Group: "
                              (mapcar 'symbol-name xwl-gmane-list))))
       (gnus-group-unsubscribe-group group))

     (define-key gnus-group-mode-map (kbd "U") 

This kind of cache may be also worthwhile adopting in Gnus?
