But you're closer to the server!  ;-)

Well, it changes "ERROR: timeout - no response in 60 s" to "...300 s"!

I'll make sure I have plenty of room in /var/ then bring the debugging 
info back.

In the past, the problem usually seems to improve over time, until I add 
another group or two, then it recurs.  Running `/usr/sbin/fetchnews -q 
-f` seems to improve things a bit, so I've set "timeout_active = 7" 
in /etc/news/leafnode/config.  (I'm using the Debian package.)

NIN support said "I've checked our logs for your account: Everything looks 
completely normal, and there are _no_ timeouts recorded."

I'll send more debugging info in the near future.  Thanks for your 
leafnode-list mailing list
