This errormsg usually means, that the hi/lo numbers in the active file are 
not correct for certain newsgroups. So the server tries to create a file that 
already exists. 

There is a short script in the inn-workers archive ( that could 
help you with your problem.


cat /dev/world | perl -e "(/(^.*? \?) 42 \!/) && (print $1))"
