[leafnode-list] can't get news articles!

	Sorry for the quick double posts...

	I just tried to grab all the news in a few groups and am unable to
retrieve anything.
	I ran a 'fetchnews -vvv' and got a bunch of the following:

Cannot create directory /var/spool/news/message.id/911
unable to create article/var/spool/news/message.id/911/<slqh6oupop397@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

	... a similar message comes out for each article.

	I read through the FAQ and made sure that my news directory was
drwxrwsr-x along with all of it's subdirectorys.
	Is there anything else that might be causing through trouble.

	One thing I do have set up that is "odd" is that my news directory
is actually in /home/news and I have a symbolic link set up -- might this
be the trouble?

	Here are some quick dir listings:

lrwxrwxrwx    1 news     news           10 Jun 30 20:10 news -> /home/news

drwxrwsr-x    7 news     news         4096 Jun 30 21:39 .

drwsr-xr-x    2 news     news         4096 Jun 30 20:18 out.going

	Many thanks for any help in the matter!!
