[Mailman-Users] gate_news raising NNTPProtocolError exceptions & pragraph duplication

I'm trying to setup an email feed of a couple of large Usenet news 
Articles seem to be flowing happily, although I'm getting a dozen or
so exceptions each day. It may be related to the number of aricles being
retrieved, as I get these exceptions everytime gate_news is run until
I perform a catchup on the news group. I was also getting the exceptions
much more often until I started running gate_news every 60 seconds 
of once every five minutes.

The other problem I am seeing is that the first paragraph (the body 
before the
first blank line) is being repeated twice.

My client is a NetBSD box running Python 2.1.1 and Mailman 2.0.6.
The upstream news server is an NT DNews server, or a NetCache (which 
to the same DNews server) - same problem with both.

Can anyone shed any light on this? My assumption would be that DNews
is brokent, but I don't know enough about NNTP to be sure.
