bug#7808: 23.2; nntp authinfo bug with async gnus


From: Robert Brown
Subject: bug#7808: 23.2; nntp authinfo bug with async gnus
Date: Sat, 8 Jan 2011 17:50:27 -0500

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give
a recipe starting from `emacs -Q':

I use GNUS to read Usenet news with the following setting:

(setq gnus-local-domain "bibliotech.com"
      gnus-local-organization "Bibliotech"
      gnus-select-method '(nntp "news.speakeasy.net"))

(setq gnus-article-save-directory (expand-file-name "~/News")
      gnus-asynchronous t        ; fetch articles in the background
      gnus-check-new-news t
      gnus-emphasis-alist '()        ; turn off smiley processing
      gnus-large-newsgroup 500
      gnus-local-timezone "EST"
      gnus-novice-user t
      gnus-read-active-file nil
      gnus-save-all-headers t
      gnus-save-killed-list nil         ; XXXX: will it work?
      gnus-treat-display-smileys nil)

I select a news group in the *Group* buffer, then read a couple of
articles.  Invariably, GNUS hangs with message "Waiting for async
article".  If I evaluate

    (setq nntp-record-commands t)

and modify the nntp-record-command function to print the process name of
the connection it's sending commands to, I see something like this in
the *nntp-log* buffer:

The code in nntp.el is getting NNTP responses that request authorization
when requesting article 714514 on the second NNTP connection (nntpd<1>),
but it's incorrectly providing authinfo on the first NNTP connection
(nntpd).

There's a workaround.  I can add "force yes" to the entry in ~/.authinfo for my
news server.  If I do this, the nntp code unconditionally sends authinfo
when making a new connection.  The nntp logging output looks like the
following and async article reading works:
