innfeed doesn't pick up external feed files

Apologies to those of you who've already seen this on news.software.nntp.
I'm using INN 2.3.2 on NetBSD 1.5.2. Innfeed's spool directory is
/news/spool/innfeed. I've found that for a peer "foo", if I place
a feed file at /news/spool/innfeed/foo, it just sits there,
indefinitely, no matter what the setting of backlog-rotate-period
If I send SIGCHLD to innfeed, then it renames the file to foo.input,
but it won't actually process it unless I kill innfeed entirely and
let innd restart it.
This happens even when innfeed is completely idle.
