This is very odd.  The active file (at least in recent INN versions) lines 
should look like this:

talk.rumors 0000000454 0000000339 y

The reason you get that error is because it's trying to overwrite "9" with 
"10" -- but there isn't enough room for a two-digit number.  There ought 
to be a bunch of zeros.

I don't know if you can convince INN to fix that or if you have to do it 
yourself (e.g. with sed/perl/etc).
