fwd: [leafnode-list] Leafnode downloads the Newsgroups every time


I am forwarding you the message that apparently got lost in your ISP
trouble. I hope it provides starting points to debug your problem.

If you're running fetchnews manually, please type "echo $?" immediately after
fetchnews, prior to entering any other command, and report the result.

If it is not "0", then the re-fetch of the full group list is a consequence
of an earlier error. If it's "1", a "real error" happened, if it's "2",
leafnode had trouble connecting to one of the upstream servers (or completing
the conversation).

Does leafnode have difficulties fetching the newsgroup list or the list
of descriptions? If so, it will re-try the next time.

Try fetchnews -vv to find out. If that doesn't help, see the
TROUBLESHOOTING section of the README file for instructions on how to
get more logs out of leafnode.
