	Fetchnews seems to run just fine. I ran it with -vv and watched it complete. 
Fetchnews is getting all the articles I think. The only problem with 
fetchnews is I'm getting the odd warning message. Thinks like:

	Can be quite a bit. The largest is over 13k messages. All text and most 
fairly small.

	The machine running leafnode is a linux box with kernal 2.2.19. It's an older 
Suse box with various updates on top. 128meg of ram. 333mhz celeron I think. 

 /var/spool/news is 97% empty. Lots of room.

	I spent some time watching top and leafnode seems to peak at about 14% mem 
and cpu when accessing the biggest group. Smaller groups are peaking at less 
then 5%.  I'm guessing the system just isn't fast enough to handle the large 
number of messages.
