I clearly remember having added a layer group to put all layers into, but as of bbecffdb659ce3b5d33d11fa93290f7c04b9cbff I see that the group is created but no layer is put into it. Sounds like a regression, or a change in core API ?

Fix addGroup to return the integer groupIndex other methods expect

This commit fixes #6591, although doesn't make the existing
interface any better than it is, and it is really bad :)
No plugin should need any adaption with the changes.

I've found that sometimes they are and sometimes they are not.
I think it depends on the presence of another layer when starting the topoviewer.

After further research it turns out that the main problem is within the core API itself, in that the Legend.addGroup function returns a useless int index. I say useless because that index is obtained by QModelIndex.row() but at scan time (in Legend.moveLayer) printing the .row() of every item's QModelIndex shows a lot of duplicates, so it doesn't seem like the Legend.addGroup return value can be used to really identify a group.
