[leafnode-list] Moderated groups problem

Following up on Robert's post, I had noticed that moderated articles weren't 
getting through to a moderated group.  Checking as he has, I've found that I 
too have lost most of the moderated flags.

(I also found that I had two versions of leafnode installed simultaneuously, 
got myself in a mess sorting it out, so now have a clean Leafnode install - 
but those moderated flags are still missing.  It may be that the particular 
group I need to be right - uk.religion.christian - is set incorrectly on the 
upstream sever).   

So I've tried setting the flag in groupinfo myself, but this doesn't seem to 
work either.  (The idea was to create a workaround for bad flags from th 
upstream server, with a script which would check the moderation flag status 
and if necessary change it after any fetchnews).

I've set the moderation address for the newsgroup I want to be my won email 
address for the moment, to avoid annoyance when it does start working.    I 
post stuff, and nothing turns up in my mailbox. 

So why isn't it working as I expect?  I must have something wrong...

Some possbly useful stuff:

# grep uk.religion.christian /var/spool/news/leaf.node/groupinfo
uk.religion.christian   m       469     2       1126344546      -x-

# grep uk.religion.christian /etc/leafnode/moderators

# telnet main.familyaldred.org.uk 119

...seems to confirm that all that should be there is!

One glitch: in my xinetd.conf file, if I copy over the nntp server setup for 
Leafnode 2.x, it doesn't work (can't telnet in).  With the setup for the 
previous leafnode version, it does.  There is no /usr/sbin/tcpd on my system 
(Mandrake), nor any other file called tcpd.  Would this be affecting things?
