<me7d7vk6c04g6idfv0eeq3dmuj1ml9avfk@4ax.com> (58116)
Click here to remove all expired articles 
5. Click the link (which links to news://xxx@news/what.ever.group?list-ids
Actual Results:

It works on 1.3.1 but not on 1.4 RC1.

Related to bug 223597?

On here (2003102005), it wakes up again after about quarter to half an hour. 
Have you waited long enough to see if yours does the same?
