innfeed problem (Failed to give article to peer)

We have a news server running innd v2.3.2 and we're trying to get an 
outgoing feed to another server working.  The innfeed.log file is filled 
with the following error:

Apr  2 16:35:53 innfeed[2012]: Adding a new article(0x808d240): 
<cancel.0d340a99.d2500e7f at pivlo.nc.us>
Apr  2 16:35:53 innfeed[2012]: Failed to give article to peer: 
-host.we.are.feeding
Apr  2 16:35:53 innfeed[2012]: Cleaning up article (0x808d240): 
<cancel.0d340a99.d2500e7f at pivlo.nc.us>

The newsfeed file has the following lines:

ME:*,!junk::

innfeed!\
         :!*\
         :Tc,Wnm*:/usr/local/news/bin/startinnfeed

host.we.are.feeding/host\
         :alt.binaries.*\
         :Tm:innfeed!
#

The innfeed.conf file has:

peer host {
         ip-name:                host.we.are.feeding
         max-connections:        1
}
#

On the host we're feeding, I have the following in the incoming.conf 
file:

streaming:              true   # streaming allowed by default
max-connections:        1      # per feed


peer feed {
         hostname: feed.our.domain
}

peer ME {
   hostname:         "localhost, 127.0.0.1"
}
#

Looking at the logs, it seems innfeed is able to connect to the host 
we're trying to feed, and setting "mode stream" with no problems, but 
then innfeed.log says:

Apr  1 18:34:58 innfeed[44353]: Adding peer: host
Apr  1 18:35:00 innfeed[44353]: host:0 Issuing the streaming command: 
MODE STREAM
Apr  1 18:35:00 innfeed[44353]: host:0 Processing mode response: 203 
StreamOK.
Apr  1 18:35:00 innfeed[44353]: Host is idle: host
#

A netstat on both systems shows the innfeed connection is established, 
it just won't send any articles over it.  Has anyone seen this before?  
Did I mess up the configuration somehow?  The host we're feeding has 
innd up and running, and I'm able to post messages to newsgroups.     
There's nothing in the logfiles on the host we're trying to feed, and 
the history is completely empty.  Any ideas?

thanks,
corey
