Yes, but selecting with your news reader the "automatically marked
uninteresting" group turns again those groups automatically as "interesting"
(without restoring the good pointers in the groupinfo file).

Yes again, but this is often the case.

Why not ?
There are certainly other things to fix since 1.9.18...

I think this bug is very "disconcerting".
( but invisible with tin with uses "listgroup" before "xover" ).

- If you use slrn, the .newsrc file loses the mapping on articles for that
- If there are articles left in the spool, new downloaded articles will be
2, 3, 4 ect. (if those numbers are not already used).
(of course this is not the case if you run texpire before)
