Still very strange.
Can you add -vvvv to your crontab line, add debugmode=1 to your
configuration file and see what the last few lines of your log are?
Can you then also check (find /var/spool/news -name '*core*') if there
are any core files
It will grow your log tremendously, so once you've got some logging that
lacks the final line, you'll probably like to remove those -vvvv again
and set debugmode=0.
Mail me the resulting log and the output of "leafnode-version" off-list
(you can gzip the log if you like and you will have to if it's in excess
of a few MB).
