Libc is fine.
I added a strerror(errno) to the syslog() call and it prints:

Sep 21 12:56:26 newsfeeder innd: CNFS-sm: file '/news/spool/bufs/1/1'
does not exist, ignoring 'A1' cycbuff [Value too large for defined data

The file is really too big.

I think it's a bad idea assuming the file does not exist when stat
fails, errno should be checked every time.
