Initial Comment:
Gaim v0.82.1 on Win32

(This is a user friendliness issue, not broken

After a new install of Gaim, select Buddies | Add
Group, enter a group, click Add, and it appears that
nothing happens.

Of course the group is created, but "Show empty groups"
option is unchecked by default, so it appears as if
nothing has happened. For a new user who is expecting
to next be able to drag some buddies into the newly
created group, this is a problem.

A related issue is that repeating the group creation
process gives no indication that the same group name
already exists, further adding to the impression that
group creation seems to not be working.

One solution might be to enable "Show empty groups" by
default, though it is quite likely that some users will
be tripped up by this even after they have chosen to
disable "Show empty groups." Showing the newly created
group momentarily also doesn't seem like an ideal fix.
Perhaps forcibly enabling "Show empty groups" any time
a new group is created is the best compromise.
