What software is the client using? Is the client properly escaping its
input and using CRLF?

If you need more information, you'll have to use a specialized debugmode
(try 131 in recent leafnode-2 versions) and look into the debug log
(which may be a separate file written asynchronously, consult your
syslog.conf manual page; try news.debug<TAB>-/var/log/news -- replace
the <TAB> with a real TAB keypress).
