I had a simillar odd problem with the current leafnode this week.
I've been using it for a while with no problems. On Thursday I
downloaded my news as normal, then run texpire -f to force expiry.
I read one newsgroup with Netscape with no problems, then switched to
another that supposedly only contained one messge (a very low traffic
newsgroup). This newsgroup contained one message the day before, and I
believe that texpire could have expired that message too. No messages
were actually in that group. The same occurred on every subsequent
newsgroup I visited with netscape either then or when I relaunched
It seems that every newsgroup from then onwards also contained no new
messages. Everything new seems to have been deleted. I didn't have much
time to investigate the problem there and then.
I can provide info from my log files if needed.
