jbryans@csulb.edu (Jack Bryans) replies:

Patch your nntp.el something like this:

*** 72,77 ****
--- 72,79 ----
    (set-process-sentinel nntp/connection 'nntp/sentinel)
    (process-kill-without-query nntp/connection)
    (let ( (code (nntp/response)) )
+     (nntp/command "mode reader")
+     (nntp/response)
      (or (eq code 200) (eq code 201))))
  (defun nntp-server-opened ()

Note that your line numbers may vary. There's a lot of nntp.el's out there.
