Status bar continues to displays 'Group is empty!' when objects have
been added to the group when immediately following an attempt to group
but included no objects.

The update note says

* GROUP command:

- If the selected group is empty, the GROUP command no longer displays
a message box saying "Group is empty". It rather prompts that message
in the status bar (with a beep) and stays active for a new group

This is working as stated but when you then correctly select items for
the group, the status bar still says the group is empty.

To reproduce:
Enter 'Group;' to clear the group.
Click the Group icon
Draw a grouping rectangle in a clear area.
Beep occurs and status line states 'Group is empty! Left-click&drag...'
The Group icon remains selected.
Draw a group rectangle that includes objects.
Objects are highlighted
The Status bar says 'Group is empty!' although the 'Left-click&drag...'
instruction disappeared.

The 'Group is empty!' wording needs to disappear once you have added
items to the group

Hi Warren,

I can reproduce the issue and have filed the appropriate bug report.

P.S I heard on the news that New Zealand was having some earthquakes or
something like that. Are you doing OK?

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia
