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

Linksys cable/DSL router
1Mb/s cable modem connection
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.)

completely normal, and there are _no_ timeouts recorded."
I'll send more debugging info in the near future. Thanks for your
