I could accept that in principle (and in fact I guess I'll have no choice but to do that), but after creating the aforementioned "prime" folder and moving groups to it, I specifically searched the "prime" folder for files and newsbin appeared to perform that.
It's annoying that newsbin would be able to USE my new settings without having saved them.
2 - All the headers are still there.
Apparently not, since I got 197K hits after the downloads but only 120K hits on the same search after the crash. Moreover, the 120K was across ALL the groups (since my "prime" folder no longer existed) while the 197K was from just the groups in the "prime" folder alone when it did exist.
Thanks for the response anyway. Just register my grumbling and I'll have to get over it.
