Being back on January 1st, 2000, I just tried your patch and the problem 
(at least with the NEWGROUPS command, but NEWNEWS uses the same code) is
solved. Reading the code, it seems really reasonable.

I think, this should be committed during the next 60 days. A lot of clients
do a NEWGROUPS command on startup, so many, many people would get
error messages when doing their first newspoll in the new year.
