After upgrading our newsserver from INN-2.3.0 to INN-2.3.1 with "make
update" after configuring and compiling it with the same options as
2.3.0, expireover fails, when "news.daily expireover lowmark" is run,
with the following error:

expireover: OVctl(OVSTATALL) failed

This also happens, when I try to run expireover manually with the

expireover -z/var/log/news/expire.rm -Z/var/log/news/expire.lowmark

I also tried adding "-s" to this command, with the same result.

After going back to INN-2.3.0 expireover runs without any problems.

We're using the buffindexed overview method, and cnfs for all article

Have I missed something, or is there something wrong with expireover in
