 is the current directory, but leafnode doesn't currently log which one
it talks about. This open(".") is used to store the current directory to
change back to it later -- and if you cannot open the current directory,
something is strange. However, if the current directory is outside
/var/spool/news (or whatever your $spooldir is), everything's fine, but
we don't know that at this time. "lsof -c fetchnews" can perhaps tell
you what's up, get lsof at ftp://vic.cc.purdue.edu/pub/tools/unix/lsof/
unless it comes with your distribution or OS.
