Couple of things I have stumbled over.  They may or may not have anything
to do with your problem.

When you upgraded leafnode, is it possible that the older version is still
laying around?  I seem to remember a couple of filename changes.  Like
fetch-fetchnews and leafnode-nntp.  Is it possible you're inadvertently
still calling the older version?

Have you perchance tried reading news with Netscape in the meantime?
Netscape can overwrite your .newsrc file and cause you some grief.   I shot
myself in the foot with that one a while back.
