ctlinnd cancel 'message-id' may work, although with long message IDs, it
may not fit in the local UDP packet.  :/  Upgrading to INN 2.3 will also
work, as the innfeed there knows enough to reject excessively long message

INN was accepting message IDs of arbitrary length; that's now been fixed
in all branches.
