I tested with the following script:

     #!/usr/bin/perl -w
     use strict;

     sub access {
        my %return_hash = (
           "read" => "news.groups,news.announce.newgroups",
           "post" => "news.groups",
        return %return_hash;

And it showed both groups in the group list.  Can you try something as 
simple as this just to be sure?
