I delete the first line, the errors about "truncated or damaged"
disappears; the other one about disk full persists.

If I do 
fetchnews -f 
the sessions completes without that error, the following ones have the
error (disk full).

I have groupinfo and groupinfo.old, but not groupinfo.new.
They are almost the same size now.

$ ls -l /var/spool/news/leaf.node/
total 1549
-rw-r--r--   1 news     news       788186 Jan  4 03:10 groupinfo
-rw-r--r--   1 news     news       788182 Jan  3 20:28 groupinfo.old
-rw-rw-r--   1 news     news          504 Jan  4 10:45 news.tin.it

Starting with this situation I did:
1) fetchnews -f  <no errors> 
and then the newsreader could receive all the articles that leafnode had
downloaded in the past sessions; I had the error about the "Groupinfo
file possibly truncated or damaged:  0 1 0 -x-" so I deleted the first
line of the new groupinfo.
2)  fetchnews  <error disk full>
the newsreader cannot receive new articles.

Now I have:
-rw-rw-r--   1 news     news       788178 Jan  4 11:19 groupinfo
-rw-r--r--   1 news     news       788182 Jan  3 20:28 groupinfo.old
-rw-rw-r--   1 news     news          504 Jan  4 11:18 news.tin.it
