Sorry this is taking me a while...

I'm still trying to get exactly what's going on here -- you haven't been
able to use helm with org at all, so you set those refile values in
order to disable helm when refiling, but with gnorb it tries to go back
to using helm and fails, is that right?

Gnorb provides the option `gnorb-gnus-trigger-refile-targets', which is
basically exactly the same as `org-refile-targets', it just allows you
to adjust how/which headings are proposed as for the gnorb trigger
process. Maybe you can try setting that to the same value as your
current `org-refile-targets', and see if that helps?

Hmm, I should probably be doing that by default...

If I were you, though, I'd be looking more closely into why helm isn't
working with org! It's pretty useful... If you use helm with
`org-refile-get-location', do you not see any headings at all? Or you
see them but typing does nothing?
