There are two possibilities:

a) The clock in your computer is going wrong (no kidding).

b) 1.9.4 entered strange dates in your groupinfo file.

Personally, since you say that a manual "newgroups" works fine, I tend
to favour possibility a). If you want to verify b), have a look at the
fourth field in each line in /var/spool/news/leaf.node/groupinfo. It
contains the date when your newsserver received a new group in seconds
since Jan 1st, 1970 (the universally accepted Unix way of storing
timestamps) or 0 if the newsgroup was already present when you downloaded
the whole groupinfo file.
