Sorry no. As I already stated this *is* a leafnode problem working with some
news readers (slrn for example).

The fetchnews process in some circumstances corrupts the groupinfo file.
In fetchnews.c, you have to *suppress* those two lines:
	    g->first = 1;
	    g->last = 1;

Running texpire will of course repair the altered groupinfo file :>
(but the newsreader's .newsrc file is already corrupted with slrn at last)
