Maybe this is the problem for which I myself suffer (but not announced).
Reverse mounting from the real name in server to the alias name in
client's view does not work when a real newsgroup name matches with
right hand URL patterns of multiple MOUNT parameters.  In your case,
all of MOUNTs have implicit "*" pattern which matches any newsgroup name,
so a proper MOUNT point might not be selected to map a real newsgroup
name to a aliased one.  This problem must be fixed in future.

For the meantime, you can avoid the problem by specifying a specific
newsgroup name pattern in the right hand of MOUNT like follows:

    MOUNT="delegate.* nntp://* rw" \
