That should be 'articlemmap' ofcourse, anyway:

% export INNCONF=/tmp/news/inn.conf
% gdb makehistory
This GDB was configured as "i486-pc-linux-gnu"...
(gdb) run -O -x -F
Starting program: /extra/staff/miquels/inn-2.4-20010405/expire/makehistory -O -x -F

Duh, now it doesn't crash anymore. I wish I had though of using
gdb right away. I hate bugs like this.

Anyway, the 'ctlinnd begin' bug I reported in another thread is
reproducible and I did get a backtrace out of it so you don't
need to be bored this weekend ;)
