I am using slrn. Currently interesting.groups has about 20 entries. However, 
leafnode is probably pulling 70 or 80 messages from about groups of which 
about 10 of those groups not in interesting.groups. For example, I have 
groups de, dk, uk, and so on which are not referenced in interesting.groups. 
When I look at the messages, they are all crossposted to a message that has 
been pulled and listed in interesting.groups.

Do these groups surface in interesting.groups?

Well, I am getting a lot of articles that are not in interesting.groups.

I guess I got a bug in my install. I'd like to see those articles not in 
interesting.groups go away and stop being pulled.

I use mesage reference to score/kill in slrn. Won't changing that impact on 
my ability to do that? I will change it and watch for a while to see if the 
problem goes away.
