group name persisting

The "create group" command does return the id of the new group in "it" but
the group command doesn't.

I'm reminded of a thread I kicked off a few months ago concerning the fact
that "last group" doesn't always return the group created with a group
command.  The dictionary recommends using "last group" after a group command
to get the group id but that never worked reliably for me.  I believe that
thread also resulted in someone entering a feature request for standardising
the use of "it"
