No, that doesn't fix the problem. It wasn't set to anything, and the comment 
in config.example says that the default is 90 days. I have set it to 365, but 
it is still downloading a massive list of newsgroups.

Closer examination of the output says 
"Getting new newsgroups from news.demon.co.uk"
But the list still takes many minutes to load at 44000bps (12 so far this 
evening). Have I got a configuration problem with the upstream server? There 
are surely not that many new newsgroups since yesterday evening. How are 
"new" newsgroups determined?
