nodesc suppresses retrieving descriptions, whereas the failing operation  
is retrieving new newsgroups.

However, it's Giganews's job to deploy conformant software, not the  
clients' duty to work around protocol violations on servers.

WRT Clemens's question whether or not the error is visible, that depends  
on syslog and fetchnews configuration: where does fetchnews log (console,  
console with redirection, syslog), does syslog capture the message, will  
syslog copy to consoles?
