For reproducibility, I believe a slow speed connection (56K modem) and reasonably high number of subscribed newsgroups (>50) is necessary. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Expand a newsgroup server 2.Collapse it 3.Re-expand it 4.Go to 2 Actual Results: Status bar displays, in that order: Checking newsgroup 56 of 72 Checking newsgroup 12 of 72 Checking newsgroup 57 of 72 Checking newsgroup 13 of 72 .... Expected Results: Aborted the first scan before starting the second, or ignored the second.
