Well, the article itself is available, however, the overview data that a
client usually requests is only updated after fetchnews has given
control back to your shell or script, it launches a background process
to update the overview data at that time.

The current leafnode-2 alpha versions have in a different way and update
the overview data for each article as it's been fetched, so leafnode-2
offers downloaded articles earlier than leafnode-1 -- and leafnode-2
doesn't need to start a background process.
