Ok, I found something...

To fetch new emails, I'm doing 'g' in the group buffer. However I just
redefined this key binding so it fetchs only emails for groups whose
levels are 1 or 2:

   (defun my-gnus-group-get-new-news (level)
     (interactive "P")
     (gnus-group-get-new-news (or level 2))

   (define-key gnus-group-mode-map [?g] 'my-gnus-group-get-new-news)

And it happens to cause the issue I'm currently facing: if I remove
this binding and therefore call a 'raw' gnus-group-get-new-news() when
pressing 'g' it works as expected.

I actually did another test without redefining 'g' binding: I did "C-u
2 g" to rescan emails for group levels 1, 2 and it fails the same way
as before.

So either I haven't understand gnus-group-get-new-news documentation,
or this function is boggus.

See if I can understand that code...
