Hum, the error message is bogus. This patch fixes the message but not
the problem (see below the patch for more information):

This means that the same file is present in the same directory again
with only some characters in upper case.

I haven't yet got around to forward-port the bug fixes from leafnode-1,
as a workaround, please find the file in
/var/spool/news/interesting.groups/ that has the same characters only in
different capitalization and kill all files except one.

Try this command to list these conflicting files:

find /var/spool/news/interesting.groups/ \
     -iname microsoft.public.outlook.general -print

If interesting.groups doesn't turn up duplicates, try dormant.groups.
