I experimented a bit.  The problem disappears by not making
widget-keymap the parent of gnus-article-mode-map but instead putting
the widget bindings directly into gnus-article-mode-map, reverting the
problematic bindings:

diff --git a/lisp/gnus/gnus-art.el b/lisp/gnus/gnus-art.el

   "\177" gnus-article-goto-prev-page

I also tried keeping widget-keymap as the parent and just changing the
problematic bindings:

diff --git a/lisp/gnus/gnus-art.el b/lisp/gnus/gnus-art.el
index c103e1c..6b25fcd 100644

This also fixes the problem I observed with mouse-1; however, clicking
on an email address with mouse-1 not only correctly opens a message
buffer to compose an email to that address, but also incorrectly inserts
the most recent item in the desktop clipboard (or primary selection?) at
point in that buffer.  In contrast, mouse-2 DTRT here.
