Try 1.9.36.rel first, it has received fixes to signal handling that may
help you already. Do not use 1.9.33 to 1.9.35.

Second, if 1.9.36 still shows this behaviour, and you know fetchnews has
finished downloading the newsgroups (modem lights/NIC lights remain dark
or something), please try to obtain a stack backtrace at the time you
know it hangs.

Hum, strange. What does "locale" print for the root user?

Has it died? Or has it finished? If you have a quick machine (some
hundred MHz) with enough RAM to cache the articles it has just
downloaded, then the child may read the articles from the cache rather
than from disk and finish in fractions of a second, faster than you type
"ps -A".

Where exactly have you looked? What have you found, and what was
different from what you had expected?
