It doesn't seem to be behaving that way. See below.

I can live with a one-time duplication of old news. And I have a cable
modem so if it takes all day to fetch, I can live with that
also. These are minor pains compared to the grief that my old news
server was giving me.

That didn't work.
I tried setting the number on just one of the groups in
news.newsfeeds.com to 0 (misc.consumers.house). That didn't cause it
to fetch either. Here's the output:
[root@thinkpad sbin]# ./fetchnews -vvv
1.9.14: verbosity level is 3
Trying to connect to news.newsfeeds.com ... connected.

I also have a very hard time believing that there were no new articles
in comp.sys.palmtops.pilot. That's a very heavy group.
Thank you for your patience with this.
