Not being able to perform Icicle search was not the problem, it is a
problem the other way round: Icicles' binding is a minor mode binding,
thus shadowing the Gnus M-s binding, which is really important. That's
the problem. Without a keybinding, it is also harder to find, e.g. with
C-h b etc. I had suggested to Lars to change the Gnuish binding, but he
didn't want to.
That Gnus shadows the global M-s binding is another issue. But since
Gnus replaces it with a search command suitable for searching articles,
it's IMHO not really a problem. AFAIK, only the summary buffer is
affected by the M-s binding, and there, "normal" searching is rarely
The clash of M-s prefix with Icicles' search binding is a third issue.
But I guess we have to live with that.
