 Confirmed. This is a regression in 2.0, introduced in r8157. In that
 changeset, the logic used when a `groups_create_group()` is called with an
 existing `group_id` is changed. When no 'name' or 'slug' parameters are
 passed, the existing properties by those names are preserved. But the same
 does not happen for descriptions: if no value is passed to 'description',
 an empty string will overwrite the original description. This causes
 problems during the normal group creation workflow, because
 `groups_create_group()` is called twice: once after the first step (when
 name, slug, and description are created) and once after the second step
 (to save group-settings).
