The problem lies with the fetch program.  I'm not much a C programmer,
however If I'm not mistaken, this is where access via message-id is
happening . . .

    /* check whether we can retrieve the body */
    if ( verbose > 2 )
        printf( "%s: BODY %s\n", group->name, messageid );
    sprintf( lineout, "BODY %s\r\n", messageid );

This was from the source for v1.9.  I know Leafnode, as a whole, has
had several revisions since then.  Has this methodology changed?
