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?
