I had something similar happen once with Leafnode 1 - I decided eventually
that for some reason the remote server had failed to provide an acceptable
groups list and so fetchnews was trying to correct that. I disabled that
feature for a while and then manually ran fetchnews -f for that server
only which resolved the problem. I never did work out exactly what had
I'd be tempted to try deleting the last: file concerned and creating a new
one (using touch) with today's date, just to see what that did ...
