Severe xover corruption problems on INN2.2.1

Hello group,

We have severe xover corruption problems on INN2.2.1 production systems.

Only some groups show corrupted xover info, and this occasionally occurs
for certain timeframes. I cannot make head or tails from it.

The corruption shows as missing parts from the subject or msg-id
entries, etc:

Bad overview record, article no 84203; no Message-Id: field.
Bad overview record, article no 84204; no Subject: field.
Bad overview record, article no 84205; syntax error in Message-Id: field.

Like this:

102760  4yv.1f5zuchipyheyN at> etc.
102763  ntrol.cancel:54660852 cmsg cancel <IE2G6P0K.7K0 at> etc.

We also have duplicate message-id's according to xover and expire:

Bad overview record, articles 84216 and 84215 have identical
                     message-id's: <ylso3xfuwi.fsf at>
Duplicate message-id "[21352E092E0B55ED2CCF74DE5CF4FF37]" in history        

Our setup: BSDI4.0.1 on Intel, fully patched. INN-2.2.1 CNFS + timehash
for local groups. Cycbuff's are 1GB each. Some entries from inn.conf:
activedenable:  true
articlemmap:    false
extendeddbz:    false
nnrpdoverstats: true
nnrpdcheckart:  false
overviewmmap:   false
storageapi:     true
wireformat:     false

Peeking at the inn-1999-09-23_03-01 snapshot i find that overview.c
doesn't exist anymore... so there is active overview work in progress.

Peeking at the inn-STABLE_2_2-1999-09-23_03-0 snapshot i find no
differences in overview.c with the 2.2.1 version (but perhaps the
problem originates elsewhere).

Any help is appreciated.
