        Well, I upgraded to the CURRENT pulled on 2001-05-06 and
        controlchan does not seem to work:

May  7 10:20:26 controlchan[6288]: Unrecognized character \x05 at /usr/local/news/bin/control/ line 1.  Compilation failed in require at /usr/local/news/bin/controlchan line 55.  

        I am not so familiar with perl that I could immediatly find
        out what is happening there. Older controlchan appears to
        be working.
        Oh, the perl version is 5.6.0 and without Sys::Syslog.
