This is a problem with reading from the news spool, rather than via NNTP -  
leafnode cannot detect which groups are interesting to you. You can change  
the cron scripts to use "fetchnews -n" (rather than just fetchnews) and  
use the touch command to create files named after the groups you're  
interested in in /var/spool/news/interesting.groups/. The files should be
