At a guess, rnews is installed setuid uucp and group news.
If you're not running a UUCP feed, rnews doesn't need to be setuid. Doing
a chown news:news and a chmod 550 of rnews would probably fix this
Alternately, chmod 775 of /var/spool/news/incoming will also fix it.

Please send questions to the list rather than mailing me directly.
