That's a know problem to me, however, I'm not sure how to fix this. The
"-f" flag is used every other month or so automatically (depending on
your active file timeout) to merge in changes to group status, removed
groups and so on, and so we cannot use the old groupinfo for now -- we
might have a wrong group status otherwise (post allowed/not
allowed/moderated). I've already considered faking groupinfo lines for
all groups in interesting.groups, but then forbid posting.
