[leafnode-list] Descriptions problem

My news server doesn't seem to understand the descriptions command, so as
the instructions suggested I added "nodesc = 1" to my config file.  But I
still get exactly the same error message.

Here's the relevant section from my config file:

## SERVER declarations go below this line ##

server = news.claranews.com
nodesc = 1

username = roosta
password = ****

(full file available from www.sjk.psimonkey.org.uk/config if you want to
see it)

And here's the error message I get:

fetchnews: version 2.0b8_ma9; verbosity level is 0; debugging level is 0
reading /var/spool/news/leaf.node/groupinfo and /etc/leafnode/local.groups
found 0 articles in in.coming.
news.claranews.com: reading newsgroups descriptions failed: 501 bad
command usage
fetchnews: 0 articles fetched, 0 killed, in 70 seconds
fetchnews: Fixing XOVER
fetchnews: Background process finished

I can't figure out why this is still happening.
