I have a big problem with innd. Since one week my innd
(ver.1.5.1) is very unstable. I have upgraded to 
ver. 2.2.1, but it doesn't work. Always when it will receive
articles a segmentaion fault occured.
My system: RedHat Linux 4.2 (with many security updates)
		on a PentiumII

innd build from

This is happens:
