OK, fixed, sorry for the noise. message-post-method was still initialized to
my former primary server from /etc/news/server (Debian Sarge). Still don't
know, where exactly this happens, though. Anyway, with this in mind, the
behavior described is understandable, although I think that uuencoded parts
should be sent to the current group and server, and not to the default server
set there. If somebody feels I miss something, please feel free to educate me.

Thanks, Bruno.
