Problems with ifnews

Ok.... I got it to finally log to the debug file.

the command line was:

bin/batcher -v -p"/usr/lib/ifmail/ifnews -N -xabcdefghijklmnopqr" f356.n141.z1

Once again it didn't accept any articles, but did print the following in
the log:

start ifnews ver 2.8e of Thu Mar 14 01:45:26 1996, verbose 0x00003fff
adding default group "fido.*" (dist world)

tidy_falist beginning from <null>

Any ideas from this?
