I have seen no log excerpts that could hint to the REAL cause of the
problem. As written before, it works for me (FreeBSD 5-CURRENT and SuSE
Linux 8.1), so there must be something with your system or upstreams
that prevents active.read from being created. Check the logs, see
the TROUBLESHOOTING section in the README file, then retry fetchnews -f.
