If it's really 1.10.3, update to 1.11.3. If the problem persists, see
README for how to reconfigure syslog to capture news log output, and
check the logs if there's any warning or error that might hint to the
problem. Logging about stale lock files is one such problem that you
should also look for.

Strange. I'd expect fetchnews to work properly.

There MAY be a problem if you switch servers (from your RWTH
Aix-la-Chapelle news server to leafnode) without resetting your Gnus
article cache, in case you have cached articles, their article numbers
are treated as seen, and if you have cached article 12345 and the group
has articles 4-99, Gnus, after catchup, will treat articles 4-12345 as
seen :-/
