I solved my own problems... the lockfile issue was resolved automatically with 1.9.3. But it still couldn't reach the news server. It turned out that user "news" was not a member of the "ppp" group and therefore couldn't read the /etc/resolv.conf file!! Silly problem... but it took a while to find it.
By default it only downloaded a handful of the articles that I _know_ the server is holding... I didn't have a maxfetch set... so I'm kinda at a loss for why I didn't get more. I have to search through the config file for clues. Is there any special constrait on the FIRST fetch of actual news articles?
