The default ist to use GROUP for every subscribed group in slrn, e.g.
read_active defaults to 0. If read_active is set, slrn only issues LIST
and NEWGROUPS and GROUP only when entering a group.

I will be able to do some tests over the weekend and provide some logs.

Currently I am trying to take over maintainership in Debian. Do you think the
script should be removed? I have to confess that I never had use for it.

I am sorry that I didn't contact you before on this behalf, my plan was to send
a mail to you after the end of the holidays in Bavaria.

In C we had to code our own bugs.
In C++ we can inherit them.
