I upadated my test server to a cvsup from 10:45am EST and tried to do
inndf -o as a regular user (ie not root or news) and it failed. Apparently
the OVopen of buffindexed opens the group.index file in O_RDWR even it
the mode is read. Is this a bug or is this used to make sure that the 
group.index file is not updated while we calculate the usage of the buffers?
