Comment (by boonebgorges):

 It looks like our protection happens at a higher level. We don't allow
 users themselves to trigger a group-leave in the normal way (by clicking
 Leave Group) if they're the only admin. See
 groups-actions.php?marks=481-488#L466 There's nothing deeper in our API
 that prevents a group from being made admin-less or member-less. And,
 generally speaking, I don't think there needs to be - it doesn't cause any
 logical problems or anything if a group doesn't have members.

 So I think what we need here is a fix for the runaway query, and possibly
 for any other untenable weirdness that might arise in cases where all
 members have been removed from a group. (where "untenable" means things
 like fatal errors or fundamentally broken parts of the interface)
