Problems with cnfsstat output...

Hi,

I am using cycbuffs of 2 Gb (was using 1 Gb cycbuffs without any 
problems) and when I do a 'cnfsstat -a' I now get:

# cnfsstat -a
Class LARGE  for groups matching "*", article size min/max: 200000/0
Malformed UTF-8 character (overflow at 0xdd3fd70e, byte 0x98, after 
start byte 0xff) in pattern match (m//) at /usr/lib/news/bin/cnfsstat 
line 465.

...  Lot of these lines...
.
 Buffer LONE, size:  1.00 GBytes, position:   633 MBytes  5.00 cycles

.
... etc...


Note it says the size is 1.00 GBytes (not 2 GBytes).

I also have cnfsstat running in background logging to syslog (cnfsstat 
-s -l -P) and the syslog entry looks OK:

Sep 12 14:06:36 nntp cnfsstat[20034]: Class LARGE for groups matching 
"*" article size min/max: 200000/0 Buffer LONE, len: 2000  Mbytes, used: 
630.00 Mbytes (31.0%)   5 cycles

Note that this says the size is 2000 Mbytes - which is correct.

Everything seems to be running OK.  Why do I get the above errors?  Is 
there a problem with cycbuffs larger than 1 GByte?

I am running inn version 2.3.4-2 on RedHat 9

Thanks,
