Is the bug reproducible?  Is it reproducible if you start fetchnews with
option -f instead (warning:  takes time with 20000 groups)?

The only thing I can reproduce without connection: fetchnews -f gives me

[ ... ]
connecting to news.cis.dfn.de:nntp: cannot connect: Network is unreachable
fetchnews: 0 articles fetched, 0 killed, in 0 seconds
fetchnews: Fixing XOVER
findgroup("de.comp.os.unix.programming") called without prior readactive()

which occurs in the child process doing fixxover().

Maybe that helps somebody else with a bugfix (core _is_ available),
maybe it's an entirely different problem.
