[leafnode-list] fetchnews: stale lockfile, articles not updated, servers skipped

Running leafnode on a Debian/woody intel system w/ 56k dailup
connection.  Version 1.9.11, installed from Debian package

I've been having trouble getting fetchnews to update news groups lists
from three servers I use, to update articles from these groups, and
there appears to be a problem in running fetchnews which leaves a
lockfile behind though the process itself has terminated.

A typical session might look like:

    [root@navel:/root]$ fetchnews -vvv 2>&1 | tee fetchnews.log 
    Removing stale lockfile.
    1.9.11: verbosity level is 3
    Trying to connect to nntp.ix.netcom.com ... connected.
    Getting all newsgroups from nntp.ix.netcom.com
    Read server info from /var/spool/news/leaf.node/nntp.ix.netcom.com

I have two additional server stanzas, which don't appear to be getting
accessed at all:

    ## This is the NNTP server leafnode fetches its news from.
    ## You need read and post access to it. Mandatory.
    server = nntp.ix.netcom.com
    server = forum.linuxworld.com
    server = news.vmware.com

/var/spool/news/leaf.node/nnpt.ix.netcom.com is a zero-byte file.

Any information would be appreciated.
