I receive a {{NullPointerException}} and a stack trace after creating a group.  After a closer look, it appears that the redirect does not pass a page after the group is created, and hence the NewGroup script craps out after creating the group.  This gives the user the impression that the group has not been created, when it has.  This is a usability bug.  I have attached a patch.


Thanks heaps!  I've applied the patch, and it looks okay.  I'll drop it in 2.4.5...
