Thanks - that will help in future! Matthias, are you documenting this in the
main documentation? I'm sure Robert and I aren't the only ones for whom the
ability to bypass upstrem servers for moderated groups - and the ability to
see that it's working - would be useful.

Pity! Ah well, it's not much system resource to grep the file for the
incorrect flag(s), and then awk it or something to correct it!
Or... <thinks>... how about appending a non-existent newsgroup (say
zz.zzz.zzz) to the end, then if a grep doesn't find that there's been a
complete fetch, so awk can swing into action and correct moderation flags for
known groups? That would be less resource-hungry if I want to make a script
capable of correcting the flags on a whole list of groups....
Would such a fake group break anything (assuming no-one actually tried to
subscribe to it, which isn't too hard to arrange in a small-scale network!)?
