You have articlemmap set to false in inn.conf and CNFS is trying to read
an article that it believes to be 1.8GB in size.  Sounds to me like you've
got a corrupted CNFS buffer.  Not sure how that happened, though, because
I didn't think the underlying file format for CNFS changed any between INN
2.2 and INN 2.3.
