Innfeed questions

I did  a couple more tests and here is what happens:

I create the new groups on both the master and the slave

I then tried to do an article post, it does not feed it to the slave

I do ctlinnd begin slave on the master and it does not change anything, it
still has the problem when  I post the next article

I do not have innfeed running as a separate process, so I then did a
ctlinnd flush '' and the third article that I posted went to the slave.

Next, I created another new group on both the master and the slave machine
and the issued a ctlinnd flush '' on the master.   I post the first article
and that article is  not fed to the slave.  I run the ctlinnd flush ''
command again and the second article is posted, which is fed to the slave.

I am running with the tradspool storage method.

When next in that situation do a 'ctlinnd begin yourslave' and in a second
try that and a 'ctlinnd begin innfeed' if there's a separate process,
to see if that resolves your problem. If that should help, you may want to
add that to the script that does newgroups (but it should not happen, so
it'd be a serious bug, and the list should hear about it).
