which new server are you testing against?
The newsgroup server I use is news.nb.net. Please use this only for testing. Btw: Tried again with 091908 and it still crashed.
news.nb.net requires a username and password, so I can't log in to reproduce this. It's a typhoon server "Powered by Slurp News (Typhoon v1.1.8)". accepting while I investigate.

you mentioned that the crash happens when it is done, or almost done. perhaps the number of newsgroups on that server causes the crash. can you send me the hostinfo.dat file for this server? since 5.0 is crashing on you, can you send me the hostinfo.dat for this server from 4.x? on win98, it would be something like c:\Program Files\Netscape\Users\<profilename>\News\host-news.nb.net\hostinfo.dat if it is too big of an attachment for bugzilla, you can email it to me directly (email@example.com)
