OK. We'll see if that is something leafnode can fix.

I've released 1.11.3 because 1.11.2 and older versions didn't check the
timeout while fetchnews was reading the message headers (getfoldedline
used the no-timeout version of getaline), please try 1.11.3 and see if
the hangs go away. If they don't, I will need a backtrace...

...for I believe that there's little room where this might hang without
printing messages -- you may have seen a message containing "receiving
message 143386" on the screen before it locked up.
