Interesting. According to the Debian changelog, only the debconf text
translations have changed.

The debug method is still the same. Please try to get the 1.11.3.rel-2
source package, compile it with debug information - default unless you
override CFLAGS to not contain "-g" or LDFLAGS to contain "-s" (perhaps
ask the Debian maintainer for help) and then obtain a stack backtrace
("backtrace full" in gdb) from a hanging fetchnews process and send me
the backtrace, along with your configuration file (passwords removed!).

If you have debug logging in your syslog file, please show me the last
lines before the hang.
