-rw-r-----    1 news     news            3903 Sep  7 19:32 /raid/news/spool/overview/c/u/a/comp.unix.admin.DAT

Another similar error from syslog:
Sep 7 19:43:06 3H:raptor makehistory[942]: tradindexed: could not mmap
index file for alt.sports.baseball.ny-mets: No such device or address

ttyq2: news at raptor ~ > ls -l /raid/news/spool/overview/a/s/b/n/alt.sports.baseball.ny-mets.*
-rw-r-----    1 news     news          591678 Sep  7 19:43 /raid/news/spool/overview/a/s/b/n/alt.sports.baseball.ny-mets.DAT

(there's tons of similar messages in syslog for various groups and all the
IDX-files for those groups seem to have similar big sizes)

...certainly something wrong in there as I doubt the index files for
various newsgroups would be something like four gigs in size :)

The software version I upgraded to is inn-STABLE-20000907 ...

The DAT file is included as pine attchment (note however that makehistory
was still running when I copied the DAT file for this mail).

Hope this helps.
