Indeed it should. Which leafnode version are you using?

Short of editing articles in out.going, there is nothing you can do at
the moment. I'll have to look at RFC-977, 1036 and the current USEFOR
drafts to figure what I can do to solve this. If you're using leafnode
1.9.41, you can edit line 1228 ff, make that:

            if (!havepath) {
                if (fputs("Path: ", out) == EOF)
                    err = 1;
                if (fputs(fqdn, out) == EOF)
                    err = 1;
                if (fputs("!news\r\n", out) == EOF)
                    err = 1;


            if (!havepath) {
                if (fputs("Path: ", out) == EOF)
                    err = 1;
                if (fputs("news\r\n", out) == EOF)
                    err = 1;

That's the middle two lines removed and the ! removed from the last fputs.

Then recompile, reinstall and see if it helps.
