The "news odissey" keeps going on...

THe problem: can't rebuild history.

The screenshot:

	tradspool: can't determine class: @0500000000BD000004F20000000000000000@: Bad article handle

I've got a tradspool. 
Storage.conf is OK, still the same It was wonderfully working since 2 days ogo.
spool/articles is full of files, readable just by article number.

tailling news.err during makehistory -O -b process I can see this errors too (coming from nnrpd):
	
	nnrpd[32340]: server.mydomain.me cant find end of line 58609947

I've tried to strace the makehistory process to discover if it was not able to access files an this is
an excerpt:
	
	lstat("/disk1/news/spool/articles/it/comp/lang/c++/35837", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=1642, ...}) = 0
	open("/disk1/news/spool/articles/it/comp/lang/c++/35837", O_RDONLY) = 38
	fstat(38, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=1642, ...}) = 0
	read(38, "Path: news!nntp.infos"..., 1642) = 1642
	close(38)                               = 0
	write(7, "e l\'indirizzo di un metodo di un"..., 4096) = 4096

I can only stat that makehistory is able to read files... I ignore if this is enough for it.
The one and only suspect I have is tha target files are currupted by the same crash it corrupted
history file.

I've tried to rebuild from scratch too, stopping the server, also making a new dbz... no way.

I'm getting hour by hour closer to desperation.
Please, help me!
