I first and only saw this on gmane.org.

Who cares? fetchnews does not. The problem is: The only article to be
fetched is not sent by the server.

To be honest: All of these before do no harm at all.

Here's the problem: 1 article to fetch, one article failed. So fetchnews
received a total of 0 articles. This result (zero) is the return value
I guess in former times there was no possibility of returning zero
articles without a severe problem. So the return value of getarticles()
is checked for being zero or not. In case of being zero there's supposed
to be some severe error, so fetchnews stops getting articles from the

This is a quick && dirty hackaround. Since then I had no other side
effects, everything seems to work well. Be aware: There is the
possibility of being "-1 articles fetched" or other strange occurences.
Another way to solve this problem could be: Write to the mailing list.
Then there are two articles to be fetched, one article is returned by
getarticles(), the error-checking does not recognise some non-existing
error, fetchnews continues its work.
