Ok, this helped only once after I applied it. After that, everything
returned to this strange problem. fetchnews fetch artices, but they do not
show up in Thunderbird. I have even tried deleting news account from
Thunderbird and also directory News from $HOME/.thunderbird/. First time
fetch OK, but after every 30 min (that fetchnews from crontab runs), nothing.

I think that it does not anything to do with Thunderbird, because, the same
thing is also in Claws Mail client.

The thing is, it only happens (thins whole problem) when fetchnews is run
from crontab (every 30 min). *But* when I run manually from Terminal:

"$ sudo fetchnews -vvvn"

then everything is OK, both Claws Mail and Thunderbird download new artices
from leafnode.
