innfeed.conf error flood

I forgot a closing curly brace in innfeed.conf just now, and in a bit
under five minutes I had some 13000 lines in news.notice about it (and
almost 4000 in news.err).  To the point that system load was at 1.0 just
from syslogd.

This doesn't seem like very good behavior...
