Yup, this is a known problem in 1.9.2. If you add a new server, you
have to force re-reading of the groupinfo file. It will be gone in
the next version (except if it creeps back in; the current beta works
as intended). The reason that these contain ALL groups is that this
makes querying newsgroups somewhat easier and it generates not much
additional NNTP traffic. (One unnecessary GROUP command per line.)

The other possibility would be to maintain for each server a complete
groupinfo file which in my opinion does make less sense because it
needs much more disk space.
