OK.  Given that a) evolution catalogs an entire newsgroup when you add

somebody describe what I would have to do manually (i.e. with evolution
shut down of course) to get rid of an NNTP subscription?

Probably no way to manage subscriptions manually, those are binary
files, I'm afraid. What about running evolution with --offline, removing
account, closing evolution, deleting
and starting evolution with --online and reentering the account again?
Not so cool but should work.


[1] it just spins and spins and spins -- I suspect there is only a
single socket to the news server and the code that enumerates the
subscriptions is blocked behind the task of reading the group headers.

What's your evolution version? Do you have debug info packages installed
and can you provide some backtrace of that "it is doing 'something'"
state? As far as I tried to play with NNTP last time (approximately a
month ago), it downloads all the group names, but doesn't subscribe to
anything, it keeps all up to you.

        Hope that helps,
