I don't know; it depends a lot on the history of your spool.  Was anything
ever added manually?  Has innd ever crashed on you?  Depending on the
version of INN you're running, there are various ways to repare this;
problems with the active file are the hardest.  Problems with the history
file can be fixed with a script to do the necessary ctlinnd addhist
