Uh oh, did you notice any delay in how long it took for you
to see this message from when Gnus started connecting?

I'm not familiar with Gnus or Emacs at all, but is there a way
you can show me a protocol dump?

Eeek, I noticed 438320 was introduced via ruby-talk; so maybe I
have a bug in that causing messages to leak into the other Ruby
lists I follow :x

OK, 341199 looks reasonable.

Not sure, I haven't made any changes to the code running on
"" in a few weeks, now.  I suspect there's a
fairness problem in the NNTP server in how it handles XOVER
and that might cause timeouts in clients.

Fwiw, I might not be online much the next few days.
