Losing hard drive space in a hurry

After noticing a FAQ note about running makehistory every so often (suggested
guideline in a perhaps old FAQ is every month?), and noticing that it
appeared there were some articles not getting expired, I figured I'd run it.
I was running inn 2.4.0 at the time, and all groups are stored using
After running 'makehistory -b -O -F -l 30000 -I', I started having tons of
problems with innd and mismatched index inodes, and expire didn't clean them
up. I also wound up with nasty overview problems which only appeared to be
resolved after finding the "ctlinnd renumber """ trick.
So I wound up upgrading to 2.4.1, and while the same makehistory command was
able to find about 1.5mil articles, there's about 7.29mil files
in /var/spool/news/articles - so something's not getting found and/or cleaned
Does anyone have any ideas about why makehistory as run with the options
listed above and/or expire wouldn't be cleaning the news spool up better, or
finding all the articles that are sitting around? Is there anything further
I can or should be doing?
Thanks in advance,
