Sorry I couldn't get to this earlier. If your expiry time is lower than
30 days, just forget the whole story because we cannot debug any
more. (Even if it's shorter we may be unable to debug).

Well, it's certainly Not Nice[tm] of leafnode to show this behavior.

Can you find the message.id/???/* file with the Message-ID and show me
what "ls -l" gives you for that file?

Can you grep your logs for the Message-ID of (2)?

Perhaps this works too:

find /var/spool/news -name '*slrndjmnkh.1eq.theo*' -ls

If it shows some output, I'd like to know which. If it doesn't show
output, I'm at a loss for now and I'll have to reproduce this.

My current suspicion is that the message-ID file from the post is still
there, but the article isn't copied into the group directory as the
group isn't subscribed or existent. The Message-ID file however blocks
the download.

Suggestions you can try in random order, let me know which work and
which don't:

1. run "fetchnews -x 100" to try to fetch the previous 100 articles too.

2. run "texpire after the post" and subscribe to the group *before*
   running fetchnews for the next time

I wonder if a locally originated post should automatically (1) create or
(2) create and subscribe to   an unsubscribed remote group. Suggestions,
with rationale?
