[leafnode-list] News article posted over and over...

Hi folks,

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?
