           Summary: superfluous followup-to header if article is posted
                    into only one newsgroup
           Product: knode
           Version: 4.4 pre
          Platform: openSUSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
        ReportedBy: diedrich.ehlerding at t-online.de


Version:           4.4 pre (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

If an article shall be posted only into one single newsgroup, knode adds a
superfluous header line "Followup-To" containing that very same newsgroup.
However, in thios case, the Followup-To header line should be omitted. Previous
versions of knode (0.9.x, 0.10.x ) didnt contain that bug.

This is not only cosmetic; it is a violation of RFC 5336 stating 
|  [...] The
|  Followup-To header field SHOULD NOT appear in a message, unless its
|  content is different from the content of the Newsgroups header field.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
post an article into just one single group


Expected Results:  
omit the Followup-To header line if only one newsgroup is affected
