Good to read that you've solved the mystery. Can you figure out where
the various files came from?
Who packaged your leafnode version, or did you install yourself, or was
it a mix of both?
A distributor package, and then your manual install, or vice versa?

Note that the original config.example that ships with leafnode has set
"server = news.example.org" since 2004 (leafnode 1) or 2005 (leafnode 2
snapshots) already...

Assuming there is one and only one leafnode-version executable installed
on your computer, running it with "-v" gives you the obvious locations,
for instance:
