[leafnode-list] NNTP server went away


Starting some time during the last 12 hours (my machine was down most of the
time), I get the above message whenever fetchnews tries to get the group
de.comp.os.unix.linux.misc from my upstream-server (news.cis.dfn.de).

When fetchnews is called from bash it echoes the following to stdout:

de.comm.software.newsserver: 1 articles fetched, 0 killed
de.comp.os.unix.linux.misc: considering articles 106059-106210
Disconnected from news.cis.dfn.de.

and adds this to the logfiles:

Jan 10 23:40:39 lea fetchnews[1294]: de.comm.software.newsserver: will fetch 1 articles
Jan 10 23:40:41 lea fetchnews[1294]: de.comm.software.newsserver: 1 articles fetched (to 521), 0 killed
Jan 10 23:40:44 lea fetchnews[1294]: NNTP server went away

I first thought, that this is my upstream's fault, but when I do a telnet there
the articles 106059-106210 are there and, as far as I can see, intact.

[telnet news.cis.dfn.de nntp:

Thus it seems clear to me that my local installation is buggy, but I cannot
imagine where.

Any hints welcome,
