It just removes text properties of a buffer being saved.
That is useless.  As I wrote before, the text property must
be removed from a string that is printed into that buffer.

It seems that the buffer contents is built up by something
like this code:

     (let ((str "abc"))
       (put-text-property 0 3 'auto-composed t str)
       (print str))

I don't know which function builds up the contents of that
buffer.  Is it gnus-gnus-to-quick-newsrc-format?  Then that
function (or what called from it) should be fixed.
