This is normal ...

.. but this is not. Apparently your groupinfo file is corrupted. Leafnode
prints the line which it thinks is damaged. In your case, it appears that
one of your newsgroups starts with - which is, as far as I know, not allowed.

You can either try to repair your groupinfo file manually, or get an
entirely new groupinfo file by calling "fetch -f". This will also fix
your problem with group descriptions.

I would definitely interested to see some of those. Unfortunately
leafnode up to 1.8.1 usually deletes those files immediately. They do
not contain any proper information, and I don't know how they are
