this is really lame of me.

instead of creating ~/.newsrc-foo or Users50\sspitzer\News\foo
I'm creating ~/.newsrc-foo/ or Users50\sspitzer\News\foo\

so a directory is getting created, instead of a file.

Yes, it create the directory "server4" instead the file.
Still need to verify on Linux & Mac later.

Tried to re-test this problem for Linux & Mac on 10-15-M11 builds:

Linux blocked by the bug#15463 & bug#16011
Mac blocked by bug#10503, cannot verified on the Linux & Mac today.
Will test these two platforms later...
Leave the Status the way it is.

OK. Used (bug#15467) work around on 10-22-15-M11 build:
Hit the down arrow once(only once)to select the News Server from the Account
Wizard, and then hit return....Passed by retesting. Server 4 directory created
from the User50/News directory. Mark as Verified.
