makehistory: Can't write overview data

Hi,

I just compiled the latest inn-stable (2.3) to upgrade previous stable
snapshot (2.2) and installed it with "make update". Now I'm currently
running makehistory as per instructions in NEWS.

I don't know if this is a bug or a feature but I'm getting lots of these
kind of messages from makehistory:

makehistory: Can't write overview data "@03324342413034000000001C12D300000006@"
makehistory: Can't write overview data "@03324342413035000000001C166900000006@"
makehistory: Can't write overview data "@03324342413034000000001C142100000006@"
makehistory: Can't write overview data "@03324342413035000000001C17CF00000006@"
makehistory: Can't write overview data "@03324342413034000000001C14B300000006@"
makehistory: Can't write overview data "@03324342413035000000001C183E00000006@"
makehistory: Can't write overview data "@03324342413035000000001C18F600000006@"
makehistory: Can't write overview data "@03324342413034000000001C15CC00000006@"
...and so on...

However, besides getting those occasional "Can't write overview data"
lines from makehistory it appears to work. Is it safe to ignore them?

(prior to running "makehistory" I rm -rf'd the contents of spool/overview
and spool/uniover to make a fresh overview and added "ovmethod: tradindexed"
into "inn.conf")

The system I'm running news on is SGI Origin 200 running Irix 6.5.9.

Thanks in advance for any information,
