Huge numbers of slow, spurious discards ...

I'm using leafnode-1.9.2, and now I'm getting huge quantities of slow,
spurious discards when `fetch' is running.  Hundreds, if not thousands
of lines like these are appearing in my syslog (I'm splitting each
line at the word "Subject" and indenting so this will fit in a news
message, but in actuality, each is one long line):

  Mar 15 18:19:23 home fetch[12131]: Discarding article 34298 
     Subject: Waiting for a process to finish? - older than 10 days
  Mar 15 18:19:24 home fetch[12131]: Discarding article 34297 
     Subject: Re: XEmacs 20.3 and RedHat 5.2 - older than 10 days
  Mar 15 18:19:27 home fetch[12131]: Discarding article 34295 
     Subject: Re: GTk+ XEmacs? - older than 10 days
  ... etc. etc. etc. etc. ...

Each line takes maybe 1 or 2 seconds to print, so this is taking up
huge amounts of time.

Note that the article numbers are decreasing.

It's also noteworthy that my local leafnode article numbers are not
anywhere close to these numbers ... my local numbers are no more than
several hundred, so these must be article numbers from the upstream
servers (I am using three servers).

Also, note that I only installed leafnode for the first time maybe 5
or 6 days ago and have been running it only since then, and yet each
message states that the discarded articles are older than 10 days old.

I'm also enclosing a copy of my /etc/leafnode/config file (with comments
removed and user-id/passwords changed).

Can anyone shed any light as to what's happening here, and how to
prevent it?

Thanks in advance.
