Hi,

Any suggestions about the below?

I'm still having trouble with buffindexed ovmethod and 2.3.2 on my 
Solaris-8 box.

After my original upgrade from inn-1.72 to 2.3.2, I had trouble
with expireover core dumping.  I then remade my overview buffers,
re-created my history and overview data a second time (with 
makehistory and makedbz again), all seemed fine for a couple weeks, but then 
all of a sudden expireover went from taking 3-6 hours to taking almost an
entire day, for the past couple days!
