I've been having lots of problems with supernews as well.  Hmmmm.

I've always been thinking it was supernews screwing up and doing some sort
of round robin funky IP aliasing thing that gave me different servers that
weren't in sync.

I have been regularly deleting appropriate files in
/var/spool/news/leaf.node, and attributing it supernews.  So I've been
mistaken huh?

I can almost see this on demand.  I will see if I can track it down.

Does it seem, in anyway, related to how often you fetch news?  Ie, maybe
low volume groups that may not receive any new messages between fetches?
