i'm seeing similar problems to 179898 at bugs.debian.org.
i saw the makehistory error when i tried to clean up a bit after the
upgrade.

now my nightly news.daily doesn't compute the feed sizes:

0.0%    0.00

and later on, i see a segfault:
Renumbering active file.
Expire messages:
expireover start Mon Feb 10 10:06:59 EST 2003: (
-z/var/log/news/expire.rm)
/usr/lib/news/bin/news.daily: line 1:  9719 Segmentation fault
expireover -z/var/log/news/expire.rm

my news spool otherwise appears to be usable from a client point of
view.  i don't get the hangs though, just those segfaults.
