[leafnode-list] Fetcnews halts while fetching news

Argh! I did it in the subject line too... sheesh

I mean fetchnews ... NOT fetchmail, wich I no longer have any problems

Another question: I edited the config file /etc/leafnode/config and
changed the maxfetch to 50 just to see if it was possible to make a
complete run, it was possible! Ok, I changed it back to 10000, but
fetchnews reported no new messages... Now I know, that there's just about
a ton of messages, that I still need (I have them in Agent on my Windoze
box) so how do I get around this? I tried the -f option, but that would
only refresh the groups lists.

Btw. I run fetchnews with -n and -vvv on a redhat 6.1 with kppp as dialer
(for the moment) I use root to run fetchnews.
