I have been having problems with this over the past couple of 
weeks. First time I ended up inadvertently posting 4 or 5 copies of 
the post, and I still showed the post queued in my news 
outbox....very strange.

I am running SuSE V8.0 with KDE 3.1.1 using Knode for news. I 
have no idea of a fix but I now post the message and then delete it 
from the outbox manually.
