Aaaaaaaaahhh!!!  What a scary looking history file! :-)

Those "normal" records do not look normal for inn 2.x to me.  I've not run 2.x
with traditional spool so I am not 100% sure about this but my belief is that
2.x history file records never have the message id in field #1.  Its always
the hash so that things like the history cache can work etc.

Is it possible you have some 1.x binaries putting entries into the history
file somehow?
