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.

Verified on the 10-15-12-M11 build/WinNT platform Passed by retest. Yes, it create the directory "server4" instead the file. Still need to verify on Linux & Mac later.
Tried to verify on 10-21-08-M11 build on Linux 6.0 platform. Blocked by bug#10503, Cc: Alec - cannot select the new News Server from Account Wizard in order to verify this bug. Will check Mac later.
Thanks Seth. Used work around to verify on Linux for today's build. Passed by testing on Linux. will try on Mac....
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.
