Hm.  This is sounding a lot like the nightly expire is breaking this.  I
wonder if parts of INN thinking that you're using tagged hash and parts
thinking that you're using regular hash could cause the symptoms you're

Could you mail me an ls -l of your db directory?  Also, did you build all
of INN with --enable-tagged-hash?  Apparently makedbz has this right,
since running it fixes the problem, yes?  You don't even need makehistory?

I don't have an ftp server that allows uploads just at the moment.  :/
Could you try the above first, and if that doesn't reveal anything useful,
also include all of history.dir (which should be a regular text file of
only a few lines) in a mail message?  If that also doesn't reveal anything
useful, we'll work out a way for you to get the history file to me.
