You are entirely correct. To avoid leafnode checking the age for each
message, use the "initialfetch" parameter in the config file. Unfortunately,
this remedies the problem only partially, since a group will not be
recognized as new if you have fetched it already from another server.
You might consider setting "maxfetch" to an appropriate value only for
the first run, but this is not entirely satisfying either :-(
