Yes, that fixed it. I think the problem was that I had previously had the 
following line for the spamcop server in my config file:

only_groups_pcre = spamcop\.

I removed this line after I noticed that the spamcop newsgroup was missing. 
(I should have omitted the "\." when I added that line in the first 
place.)  I had assumed that Leafnode would detect that the config file had 
changed and update its group list.  My assumption turned out to be 
incorrect.  Perhaps there is a good reason for this behaviour, but if not 
I suggest that it be changed.
