to me this sounds as if your upstream NNTP host is overloaded or
doesn't work correctly.  if you use four `-vvvv' and/or set debugging
appropriately (see config.sample, README etc.) and check the log, do
you see what goes wrong?

also, you could "telnet <NNTP host> nntp" and try commands like
"help", "group <whatever>" to get a feel of how patient a news client
has to be for your upstream.  what's its name?
