Well, I insert next string to send-ifmail script:

    cat ${BATCHFILE} > ${BATCHFILE}.`date +%T`

exactly before executing batcher. And I see 2 wrong batchfiles. Note,
they both have exactly 8 kb size. Here only last 5 lines of batchfile.

This is errorlog:

batcher f125.n5055.z2 skipping "@03014..." too long
batcher f125.n5055.z2 skipping "@0301425546463030000000..." too long

Note, I use buffchan:

        :Tx,Wnb*:/usr/local/news/bin/buffchan -f 2 -p /var/run/news/

and when I add '-u' option (disable buffering) no 'too long' errors
