I agree about it not being bogus upstream data.  I'm using leafnode
for a local-groups-only setup; i.e., no upstream data at all.

And besides, a few of us are getting this same error message with
the 20041113a version.

Also, I had accidentally sent a previous post to the wrong address,
so I'll repeat the gist of that message here:

In my earlier message, I spoke too soon: I now realize that the
message in syslog was was _not_, after all, coming from an older
leafnode version.

In lines 531-532 of leafnode-2.0.0.alpha20041113a/activutil.c, I see

  ln_log_sys(LNLOG_SERR, LNLOG_CTOP,
             "Groupinfo file damaged, ignoring line: %s", p);

In other words, it's the old version of the message, not the new one
that you (Matthias) described.  I guess this is consistent with what
you said above about the line having changed in your source
repository _after_ the 20041113a release.

... and my system is FreeBSD 4.0.
