[leafnode-list] Leafnode not touching interesting.groups

After a time not using my local leafnode I came back to it.  Thinking I 
knew what was supposed to happen I did
#  touch /leafnode/news/interesting.groups/*
to that I wouldn't lose my subscriptions then ran fetchnews.

All good for a couple of days but then groups started being unsubscribed 
by fetchnews and sure enough the mtime on the files in interesting.groups 
had not changed.

Looking more carefully they don't change whatever I do - read or post. The 
exception is if I subscribe to a previously unread group and read the 
dummy article which properly creates a file in interesting.groups but 
subsequently the time on that file isn't updated.

eg an ls -l fro a newly subscribed group gives:

    -rw-rw-r--    1 news     news            0 Jun 26 10:22 

which is unchanged after reading the group.

In the time I wasn't useing leafnode various things have been updated on 
my machine (from the bash shell to the kernel several times) but neither 
Leafnode nor Slrn have been changed.
