Hmmm. Strangeness. 

I am using 21.4.1 out of the box, which makes Gnus 5.9.  For me, D e
is not bound to anything at all, although D is bound to...

D runs the command gnus-summary-mark-as-read-backward
   which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `gnus-sum'.
(gnus-summary-mark-as-read-backward N)

Mark the N articles as read backwards.
The difference between N and the actual number of articles marked is

More over gnus-draft-edit-message is not autoloaded. I have to load
gnus-draft manually. 

I've had a look through the code base. gnus-draft-mode-map appears
correct, and defines the keys. But I have no "drafts" menu appearing
as I should have.

A bit more picking about tells me that the reason for this is because
gnus-draft-mode is off, which is where all these commands come from. 

If I run M-x gnus-draft-mode in the drafts summary buffer then all
works correctly (although obvious I still have to use D e, rather than
just e). 

I presume that this is supposed to happen automatically? It's entirely
feasible that some of my extensive .emacs is causing the problem
here, so if it should work, I'll have a poke around and try to find
out why not.
