Unfortunately I *do* need protocol dependent value-added services (the
combining of multiple nntp servers to form a virtual server). Also I plan
on using this program for much more thn just nntp but I am trying to take
things one step at a time. :)

I am not sure what you mean by bypassing proper setup of necessary
environment? If I am not setting up something properly please let me know.

Something very odd is happening with the nntp relay. I can issue a command
like "help" and that will be returned without problem. I issue a command
like "list" and delegate kills the client session (after receiving the
newsgroup list from the server and saving it in a tmp file).

Also I do not know why I am getting write errors in the logs as the
directories exist and delegate has write access to them.
