Apparently news.easysw.com discards the provided Message-Id and uses
his own. Running the next time, fetchnews asks if the article is
present and is not able to find it (because a posting with the given
Message-Id simply doesn't exist), so it is posted again. news.easysw.com
is broken for any injecting agent which tracks posted articles by MID.

I don't think there is something leafnode can (or wants to) do about it.
