I figured out the immediate reason for the failure: when replying
to *certain posts*, my newsreader omits the Newsgroups header from
the response.  Why it does this is still a mystery to me, but at

"venerable" (i.e. decrepit) nn as newsreader, so this discovery
probably won't help many of those reading this...
