Please provide more information.  Find out what goes wrong.

Look at: 'slrn --debug debugfile', look at leafnode's syslog output
(typically /var/log/messages and /var/log/news/* ) and maybe even try
'telnet localhost nntp' yourself to see what happens.  Report anything
unusual.  If it segfaults, find the core file (most likely to be found
with 'find /var/spool/news -name core') and provide a backtrace.
As a last resort, maybe start leafnode from within gdb (as user news)
and see where it fails (or slrn, if that turns out to be buggy).  In
case you want to do bug-hunting and the debugger-session does not help
you, try using either leafnode or slrn with valgrind (which IMHO is a
very nice tool for finding runtime memory problems, thanks to Volker for
the pointer) if you are using Linux/x86.  If you even want to help more,
go look at the source code and try to fix it, provide Matthias with a
working patch.  And oh, slrn bugs should go to their list :-)

But most likely your leafnode server does not have a correct hostname,
guessing from your Original-Message-ID.

BTW, slrn- and 1.9.20.rc8 work together over here.
