The subfolder hierachy in the the $pathspool/articles/ folder respects
the hierarchy I've created and expect to see in the newsgroup tree in
the newsreader...

It's the one provided with the KDE window manager (knode) and it appears
to handle correctly the newsgroup tree provided by my ISP but not mine.
On this newsserver there are groups that don't have a deep tree (only
two or three levels) and they are displayed as trees in the newsgroup
list...So it doesn't seem to be a threshold problem...
Anyway it looks strange but it's not such a problem. I just wondered
whether I might have configured something wrong in INN...
