[leafnode-list] News article posted over and over...
I have a very nicely working leafnode 2 installation. Multiple servers,
some of which are readonly and some are postable. All fine apart from
the news.easysw.com news server, which I use for groups relating to the
CUPS printing system.
Normally, when I post a "ordinary" article it's sent off happily, and
disappears from /var/spool/news/out.going just as I'd expect.
However, when I post to news.easysw.com, the article is accepted from my
server, but it remains in /var/spool/news/out.going. An hour or so later
it's picked up again and reposted. And again. And again. Until I remove
it from the spool directory.
I've got a packet capture, and the protocol follows pretty much as I'd

The relevant syslog entries are also reasonably plausible:

I'm using leafnode 2.0.0.alpha20061010a-1 from Debian's experimental
archive, if that has any bearing.
Any suggestions, please?
