NNRPd "option"?

	Since upgrading to INN 2.3, my FreeBSD 3.2-STABLE machine hasn't
been able to stay up for much more then 24hrs before grinding to a halt.
I've been working with Matt Dillon to resolve this, and we've got it
narrowed down to INN's 'footprint', with his suggestion being:

    nnrpd should not be getting that big.  There is an INN configuration
    parameter, I forget exactly what it is called... which causes nnrpd to
    load the hash table for the history file into memory after a certain
    number of message-id lookups.  Find it, turn it off, and recompile -- 
    so nnrpd *never* tries to load the hash table into memory.  This may
    solve your problem simply by reducing the size of nnrpd's footprint.

The thing is, I don't know of any parameter that allows, or disallows
this, and suspect it might be something from an older one?  Or I'm just
blind?  Is this an option we still have in 2.3?
