Ok, anything I can do to help please feel free to ask.  In the meantime
I'll look at this from the tin side.  Well, I say "I'll look", that really
means I'll just start querying someone else ( "tin-bugs@xxxxxxx" seems to 
be a good place to start ). If it's any use I'm using:

hostname:~/.tin# tin -V
tin pre-1.4 release 980226 [UNIX] (c) Copyright 1991-98 Iain Lea.
Reading global config file...
Reading config file...
Version: pre-1.4 release 980226  Mar  4 1998 20:16:49

and the end of the config file states:

# host & time info used for detecting new groups (don't touch)
newnews=localhost 946862787

news.software.readers and post up this problem.

If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
