Delaybody problems ( WAS Re: Re: [leafnode-list] Filtering revisited. )

I'm no coder so I can't help at the moment, but in the future if you'd
like someone to test this code as soon as it approaches functionality please
feel free to contact me.

Onto my main reason for this email.  I've successfully set up Leafnode and
Fetchnews using the delaybody option.  Headers have downloaded nicely, and
can be read via Pine, tin and trn.  However at no point does fetch download
the bodies of the messages I've viewed.

Any information on what settings to check ( at news-server or news-client
) would be appreciated.  Alternatively, any pointers on what should happen
to files in leafnodes structure appreciated, so I can try and debug the
problem and work out what is or isn't happening.

Thank you.
