Thank you for your interestings answers and comments.

I run Xubunty 12.04 X64. Interesting post Duncan. No quota and full of space on 
my hard drive, > 50 GB.
1)   About the hidden .pan 2 permissions directory, there is an error. It says 
"the rights of this folder are contradictory, you will not be able to work with 
files inside this folder". It proposes to automatically correct the rights of 
this folder and to put them in a coherent way. I am not sure this is a good 
idea. I do not know how to allow the permissions, <user> read/write etc... 
Remember I right click to see the properties.
2) I have made a test with this binaries group "alt.binaries.punk" with usenet 
server It shows the header but 0 byte for every file 
so it can't download.
 I made another test with another usenet server and now 
everything is fine because it shows the number of bytes and remembers what was 
saved. Both of these servers have a free trial.
3) In any case Pan 0.139 is able to download binaries from nzb files, even if 
the size of the parts are not saved (zero byte).

So what can I deduce ? Some usenet providers are faulty (2) or problems with 
permissions (1) or both ?
