This sounds like it could be a problem with reverse DNS (or identd, if 
you are using identd on your network).  Could your networking changes have 
inadvertently affected some sort of firewall-type thing?

In your news.notice, are incoming hosts being logged by hostname or by IP

How does your readers.conf expect to identify those connections?  I wonder 
if this is related to the above.
