Oh.  I found it.  The latest CURRENT expects a "hismethod" parameter to be
set in inn.conf, and of course you don't have one.

I don't know anything about the changes in the history API, but it appears
that if you add "histmethod: hisv6" to inn.conf you can still use CURRENT
nnrpd with STABLE everything else.
