Just ran out of overview space again on my system, so created a new buffer
and restarted...got an error to the effect of:

buffindexed: length mismatch '1572864000' for index '0' (1573164095 bytes)

So did an ls and check of my buffindexed.conf file:

ls -lt /var/spool/news/overview/
total 3353384
-rw-r--r--   1 news     news     201799680 Oct  2 10:47 OV4
-rw-r--r--   1 news     news     1573691355 Oct  2 10:46 OV3
-rw-r--r--   1 news     news     1574215175 Oct  2 10:46 OV2
-rw-r--r--   1 news     news     1573164095 Oct  2 10:46 OV1


Aren't OV2 and OV3 just a little large?  When I created them, they were the
size I stipulated in buffindexed...
