This is actually intentional. RFC 1036 doesn't say anything at all about
valid newsgroup names, but most other informal standards and guidelines
don't allow newsgroups with components beginning with non-alphanumeric
characters. I notice that it isn't well-documented, though; I'll add
something to the documentation at least.
