The canonical way to achieve this is running "fetchnews -n". However,
leafnode looks at the ctime of the interesting.groups/* files rather
than the mtime, when it comes to unsubscribing. Use ls -lc, or use chown
or chmod if you want to set the ctime to "current".

Maybe not changing leafnode is also a problem... which version are you
running? Check http://mandree.home.pages.de/leafnode/ for leafnode-1
versions and http://mandree.home.pages.de/leafnode/beta/ for leafnode-2
versions, and look at the NEWS file (or the ChangeLog.txt for
leafnode-2) to see if there have been fixes related to your problem.
