I forgot something. OV1 > 2GB, but buffindexed.conf(5) says:
     must be buffer_size * 1024 bytes.  You can NOT  use  buffers
     over        2GB        even       if       you       specify
     <--with-largefiles at configure>.  Or buffers will  be  bro-
     ken.  It'll be fixed in the future.
But it doesn't explain why innd can't stat(/news1/overview/OV1). So trace
inndstart (or innd -P 9876).
