another dataloss.  Thought I saw this mentioned somewhere else, but I'm not find an open bug
Severity: normal → critical
Ever confirmed: false
In reading the subscribe UI code, subscribableServer.commitSubscribeChanges is called during the OK button callback. Committing the changes does flush the newsrc, so someone fixed this at some point in the intervening 8 years.
