[leafnode-list] Puzzling problem with 2.0b7

Fetchnews refuses to connect to a machine which is clearly there:

~% /usr/local/sbin/fetchnews -nvvvDDS news.informatik.uni-wuerzbuerg.de
2.0b7: verbosity level is 3
Do not automatically unsubscribe unread newsgroups.

Why is that? (Calling fetchnews with IP instead of name works fine.)
