Broken slrnpull

Hello World,

A week ago, I updated my laptop to current unstable (is it Sid?). Since
then my slrnpull is broken.
A manual run shows (as user):
su: must be run from a terminal
/var/lib/debconf//debconf.new: Permission denied at
/usr/share/perl5/Debconf/ConfigDb.pm line 92, <GEN0> line 1.

and as root:
03/07/2001 10:02:36 ***Unable to open /var/log/news/slrnpull.log for
03/07/2001 10:02:36 slrnpull started.
03/07/2001 10:02:36 ***Unable to open active groups file slrnpull.conf
03/07/2001 10:02:36 A total of 0 bytes received, 0 bytes sent in 0 seconds.

But (in /var/log/news/):
-rw-r--r--    1 root     news          200 Mar  7 08:33 slrnpull.log
and (in /etc/news/)
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1717 Nov 27 07:59 slrnpull.conf

Is this bug already fixed? If not: Any ideas how to fix it?
