[Mailman-Users] gate_news raising NNTPProtocolError exceptions

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.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

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