Did you issue "mode reader" first?  If not, you were probably talking to
INN (because localhost is listed in incoming.conf by default), in which
case there's something subtly wrong with readers.conf; if so, then 
readers.conf must be distinguishing by incoming IP.

Then your readers.conf is not configured right.  Can we see the 
uncommented parts of that file?
