Well, yes.  setgroups() isn't portable and of limited use.
If the leafnode user (often "news") or root user is in many groups,
something's hosed anyways, and I don't mean to change semantics.

leafnode isn't supposed to be installed as set-uid application (nor does
it need to), so unless someone points a real risk scenario out to me, I
will ignore this warning.
