Re: [leafnode-list] Newsgroup seems corrupted

Thanks to all who replied.

I am not the only one having problems.   A reply to someone else on a 
newsgroup suggests:

"Knode has a bug.

"If header of the originating message refers back to itself, Knode gets thrown 
into a loop and winds up taking CPU time and grinding away at the hard drive.  

"There is such a message in alt.os.linux.mandrake.  It's in the 'rar file' 

The "rar" thread is dated 28 January according to a Knode search (which 
doesn't open 
the article.)

I have texpire set at 10 days and I haven't read the article he mentions, so 
I only need to wait.  I can even set it shotrer for this ng.
