Leafnode cannot extract any sensible information out of the file so it
will delete it. Usually the message means the file is either corrupted
or empty. You should try to investigate whether you get these empty
files from your upstream server or whether you have a corrupted news
spool. I have not seen this message in months. (That's why I am so
interested in it.)
