Seems like Knode was written  by the same people unless I'm missing something 
there, too.  I've found that when I read new posts (whoops, just had to wait 
for Kmail to finish it's check) if Knode does it's scheduled check it decides 
to make what I'm reading disappear.  That is I will click on a post and have 
it's text appear in the article viewer pane.  If Knode scans the group the 
text in the view pane disappears!
