Wow, that's a good tip. I've been wondering about this for some time. I have
always just been manually starting gnus-draft-mode before editing a draft. 

I wonder how the property got lost, though. I don't think I have ever done
anything to edit the properties of the draft group, and I definitely did not
create it by hand.
