1. short version :
------------------

On my PC, fetchnews 'hangs'[1] when there is an out-going message in
"/var/spool/news/out.going/". When I erase the file(s) in
"/var/spool/news/out.going/" fetchnews works without a problem.

When I use slrn and connect directly to 'news.easynet.be' without using
leafnode, I can post without a problem.

2. long version :
-----------------

[1] It really doesn't hang, when I wait long enough (severall minutes) I =
get
some time-out errors. This is what I get (syslog) after waiting =C2=B120 =
minutes:
