no buffer space available

My FreeBSD 4.7 INN 2.4.0 news server merrily chugs along for a couple weeks
before it decides to stop accepting NNTP connections. The rest of the
processes on the box seem to work fine, and the only useful log message I can
find is this one in my nntpsend.log:
ctlinnd: cannot send "flush" command (sendto failure): No buffer space
Any ctlinnd command I try to send fails with this same message.
I don't have any full filesystems, I have a reasonable amount of free memory,
not out of mbufs, etc. I'm using ovdb and storing the bulk of my articles in
I'm supposing the control channel of innd is out of buffer space, but I can't
find how to extend that buffer or look at its status.
Anybody out there run into this one before, and/or know how to fix it?
