This one?

newgroups 010101 000000 GMT
503 Cannot open newsgroup date file.

I just sent a plea to usenet@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx to fix that.

The patch is clean from what I can see at the moment, but I will not
take it into my -ma series. 

leafnode does not analyse and track errors properly in all
circumstances, and I don't think discarding just the error message would
be good. 

You can always use grep -v when viewing or analyzing the logs if you
want to discard it. 

The user should know why new newsgroups don't arrive sooner as the full
active fetch. (fetchnews should rather log the complete error line that
the server returned.)
