Mac OS 9.1 - 2001-08-13-08 RedHat 7.1 - 2001-08-13-21 Windows 2K - 2001-08-13-03 Setup: I have 2 news servers, "news.netscape.com" and "news.mozilla.org". Both have large numbers of newsgroups, all from the netscape.public.mozilla* hierarchy. Observations: 1. When I expand either server for the 1st time, both display status in human- readable intervals (each "Checking xx of xx newsgroups for new messages" can be read). 2. The 2nd time I expand them, only the "news.mozilla.org" server is readable, that is; the "news.netscape.com" server's status updating is so fast (I can see that it's updating, just can't tell each #, like I can the 1st time I run this). What I'm expecting: If this should update after each newsgroup (as this bug is filed), then why is it *so* much faster the 2nd time, and *only* on "news.netscape.com"? I'll attach an NNTP log.

I have similar problems: a News server from my isp: news://news.noos.fr and secnews://news.netscape.com Expanding netscape works fine When i expand news://news.noos.fr, it takes a very long time. The status show Check newsgroup 2 of 6 ... The unread messages count of the first newgroup is correct, the other ones are not updated. I have to select manually the newsgroup to see the unread message count First i have suspected my provider, but NS4 works fine...
I found my problem. There is a bug about that. A problem with empty newsgroups, stopping the newsgroup reading
sorry for the spam. making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs. filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.
Filter on "Nobody_NScomTLD_20080620"
WFM on Linux 220.127.116.11pre.... I think. All the servers update too fast on my connection to be able to be sure.
