I believe if you wean trn from .nntpauth the file won't be deleted and
both trn and nntplist will be happy.

If it doesn't go, I'd recommend you to run nntplist with the env variable
DOTDIR set to a reserved location that contains a copy of (maybe a
symbolic link to?) .nntpauth as a workaround.

It's odd. I can't find any shred of NNTP authorization in my Pnews script.
I am also using trn 4.0-test76.
