Yes,
with inn-2.3.1 on FreeBSD-4.1.1 and Compaq Tru64 UNIX 5.1,
with buffers as regular files.

The newsgroups seem to be the same from day to day, with a few
new groups added to the error list each day.

Is this something to worry about?

BTW, I have 40 buffers of 100MB each.  Would I gain something by using
fewer and larger buffers?
