Details are dim memories. I did this work 8 months ago.
The INN file handle/mmap .IDX caching made it impossible for
a thread to guarantee its cache slot will not be purged by
some other thread ariving later.
I seem to recall also that there was a problem having to manage
potentially simultaneous inserts into a single newsgroup.
