Hum, I'm using Gnus here on that version, no troubles so far:

$ wc -l /var/spool/leafnode/leaf.node/groupinfo
  25864 /var/spool/leafnode/leaf.node/groupinfo

Not quite, because the bug is not known yet. Could you do the following:

1- run fetchnews, make a copy of your
/var/spool/news/leaf.node/groupinfo outside /var/spool/news

2- run leafnode or texpire until truncation, make a copy with different
name outside /var/spool/news

3- check if there are ANY log file entries, maybe save your news-syslog

4- gzip both of the files, maybe also the log file, and mail them to me
privately (not to the list, it does not really support attachments)
