I'm currently seeing this too much:

Feb 15 17:10:26 enterprise innd: SERVER bad_newsgroup alt.fr.motos.yamaha
Feb 15 17:10:26 enterprise innd: SERVER throttle Success writing creating overview file -- throttling
Feb 15 17:10:26 enterprise innd: SERVER cant store overview for @030368646331000000000026A1F800000001@
Feb 15 17:10:26 enterprise innd: SERVER cant write history <4ips4vo1n4m0h4dl56gmb4bjj0lssfh9kp at 4ax.com> Success

This article has in the Newsgroups: line:

Newsgroups: alt.fr.motos.yamaha,alt.fr.bienvenue,alt.fr.misc.actualite

/news/spool/overview/a/f/m/y is empty, no alt.fr.motos.yamaha.{DAT,IDX}
files. This group is also not in the active files.

/news/spool/overview/a/f/b/alt.fr.bienvenue.{DAT,IDX} and
/news/spool/overview/a/f/m/a/alt.fr.misc.actualite.{DAT,IDX}
are present. Groups are in the active file.

Ah .. wait .. this is an Xref-slave machine. Presumably the group
does exist on the xref-master..

Xref: news2.cistron.nl alt.fr.motos.yamaha:1 alt.fr.bienvenue:390 alt.fr.misc.actualite:214

Yup. So it appears that if a newsgroup is present on the master
but not on the slave, the slave dies (throttles at least). That's
bad, no ?
