News Group Issues within Pine?

Well, since at least 1997 I am still grabbing binaries from Pine, but now I
must pipe raw messages through uudeview - because of the yenc encoding.
Anyway, here on Shellworld, since we don't have news, I grab via nntp from
Giganews. All seems to go well until either I change news-groups during the
same Pine session, or mysteriously while I am grabbing binaries. All of a
sudden, I see an error message, "no state found for news group
alt.binaries.remixes.mp3, reading as new" Once that happens, all the rest of
my .newsrc file is hidden away, and I only at most have that 1 group active.
Now that Giganews is up to 700 days binary retention, many binary groups are
way too large for Pine to read, or even after you open a larger group,
sometimes, says, "problem detected, abort trap, trying to save debug"
On Shellworld I can still work on groups through trn but on my local machine
trn will not compile in FC9
Sure replacing an older .newsrc file temporarily restores these groups, but
obviously I need to read or catchup. However, this no state found problem is
becoming worse. Can some1 please suggest why this is happening or a fix.
I've tried setting an nntp range in Pine, but 30thousand is as high as it will
go, but you only see the last 30000 postings.
Thanks so much in advance
