Upgrade to etch kills nntp server authentication
As either root or user I start gnus and it seems to hang for a while,
but eventually I get the message:
open error: ''.
If I continue, my subscribed newsgroups are listed, but without any
readable messages. For example:
Once when I tried to download messages in that group, the group name
was replaced with:
*: e100: 3th0: e100_watchdog: link up, 100Mbps, full duplex
Could it be that I'm no longer being authenticated to the news server?
I'm forced to work from console because my X server won't start
either because it insists on creating a new authority file
(~/.serverauth.3044) that neither shows up nor works.
