[leafnode-list] Empty groupinfo file

Hey ho.

I've had a leafnode server working for some time now, but it recently
began acting flaky.  I've had no new Usenet messages for a week or
two, due (I think) to an empty groupinfo file.  I can't figure out
what's up.

I use the server news.rcn.com, which is an alias for

The partition for /var/spool/news has plenty of space.  No issues

Here's the output of fetchnews:
