I think here was more then one innfeed running after
"ctlinnd reload newsfeeds" or some other like this.

Nov  4 04:49:21 solar innfeed[19357]: ME tape open failed (a+) /var/spool/news/innfeed/percoua.output: Operation now in progress

and then

because tape->outFp is NULL and fprintf() cause SIGSEGV. :(

Also I don't understand this error codes:

Nov  4 04:50:44 solar innfeed[19380]: ME oserr status file open: /var/log/news/innfeed.status : Operation now in progress

Why it happens and what should innfeed do if it cannot open
backlog file? May be, put articles to innfeed-dropped or don't
get arts from innd (wait while open() will success)?
