When logging into news:// using the tin newsreader, I get the following message:

Your server does not have Xref: in its XOVER information.
Tin will try to use XHDR XREF instead (slows down things a bit).

Newsgroup performance is subsequently quite slow and all messages appear in one thread.
Steps to Reproduce:
Log in to using tin.
Problem does not halt progress.

According to Report # 67352 the fallback to XHDR XREF also fails.
