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 
gone wrong.

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 ...
