  I am having a problem with expire using inn2.3 05/09/2000 release. I
keep getting a "Can't malloc 79063650 bytes: Not enough space" message
when expire runs, or actually doesn't run.

The db directory looks like:
   -rw-rw-r--   1 news     1375011 Jun 14 05:40 active
   -rw-rw-r--   1 news     1374969 Jun 14 05:40 active.old
   -rw-r--r--   1 news       12532 Jun 14 05:40 active.times
   drwxr-sr-x  32 news         512 Jun 12 23:56 backoff
   -rw-rw-r--   1 news     821489803 Jun 14 11:03 history
   -rw-rw-r--   1 news          60 Jun 14 11:03 history.dir
   -rw-rw-r--   1 news     107999886 Jun 14 11:03 history.hash
   -rw-rw-r--   1 news     143999848 Jun 14 11:03 history.index
   -rw-r--r--   1 news        3189 Jun 13 22:43 newsgroups
and the O/S is AIX 4.3.3 using large file support. I don't think that
matters, the history file is less than 2GB anyway.

  Any thoughts, known bugs, ideas?
