Well - that's a problem that cannot be debugged without proper logs,
including tcpdump/tshark logs to see where it goes wrong - and I have yet
to see fetchnews (leafnode) logs...

"socket error" is not usually a problem in fetchnews/fetchmail, so just
switching software doesn't prove anything here.
